Ankara, December 12-17, 2016

WISEGUYS are organizing a workshop to develop models for an urban playground.

The workshop will take place in Ankara in collaboration with the faculties of Art, Design and Architecture of Başkent University and Tobb University and will be hosted by the Architects’ Association 1927 (MD1927). The workshop is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Turkish Cultural Foundation.

A team of Turkish and Dutch artists, architects and designers will make various models for an Urban Playground, a place for meeting and recreation in the city for people of all ages and all backgrounds. The models will be mobile and flexible, like a pop-up situation, so that they can be adapted to different situations, like specific public spaces, festivals or other relevant public events and also to refugee camps. Important issues will be to bring different generations together and to offer playful modes of interaction that are both attractive and instructive.

At the end of the workshop there will be a presentation on contemporary practices in public art in relation to this topic, including the results of the workshop, to students of Bașkent and TOBB University and other people that might be interested.

In a later stage WISEGUYS will explore possibilities for a combined workshop, on the theme of ‘Urban Playground/Meeting Place’, for architecture students of Bașkent and TOBB University together with students of Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.
