For BARN, which obscures the existing boundaries and tries to create its architecture outside of the conventional practice by jumping on the other side of the line, designing is a way of speaking and going into action. The movement starts with the design of actions, collides with knowledge and experimentation in memory and creates a polyphonic result-oriented environment by including all disciplines in the space-human section. The design to production process continues by taking people on its focal point, makes the sense of belonging a pioneering character by examining the relationship between the space and atmosphere with the relevant digital tools.
The proactive team, in defense of urban memory, believes the importance of transformation and articulation before destruction, and that designing should continue even after the construction state ends. Through the design process, BARN aims to contribute to the sustainability of the spaces and the city they create by focusing on the concepts of temporariness and permanence.
Abstract or concrete, all materials have different potentials in design. We call materials that meet different needs outside of the area of its function, ultra-materials. To achieve this, we utilize a robust geometry that can be applied in product design and architectural projects.
Our experimentation with materials begins in the office and is later refined alongside skilled craftsmen in workshops and factories. We own it, call it BARN material. We keep it with us and develop it.
DESIGN TO ARCHIVE
BARN arch. designs actions by combining memory and experimentation in an interdisciplinary approach. Our focus is on humanity, and we utilize digital tools to explore abstract and concrete variables. Each idea follows a defined cycle, and we carefully select who and what is involved in the process.
The state of design ends and observation begins. We observe the actions and spaces created during usage, following the user closely. We prioritize the operability of the design and will intervene if necessary.
Feedback from the design, production, and usage stages is analyzed, documented, and used as input for future projects.
