KNOW THE PAST / CHALLENGE THE PRESENT / CREATE THE FUTURE DESIGN AND INNOVATİON ACADEMY, AHMADABAD-INDIA
The main idea of the project is voxels. In the nowadays digitalized world, the observance of humans on the environment are based on pixels mainly. With the developing technologies, the detail levels of those pixels are getting high so realistic. But when the effort to show something as it is again the same problem goes on: the restricted mind in context. So a pixel is an abstraction, and a voxel is the 3d version of it. That this project intersected a minimalist baseline with an inter-connecting voxel system. By doing that also rather than distracting the main baseline the voxel system creates a dialectic tension with the main masses, works as a datum, and clarifies the perception on their clarity and functions as the thinner places that are needed to be. According to Pallasma’s look on the observance of the space, the process is multisensory and happens by not only the Aristotelian senses but also senses like scale continuity balance and illumination. That idea of the voxels leads the project also to create triggers to a meditating mind observing the space based on those senses. Voxels... Which is also very much inspired by the paternal behaviors in India like the step-wells of Gujarat and muqarnas in Islamic architecture.
