ULKER’S ART WORKSHOP FOR CHILDREN AT ART INTERNATIONAL
Ulker’s Art Workshop for Children was designed for Art International Fair at Haliç Congress Centre in September 2015.
- to design a space that would enhance children’s art workshop experience
- to use recycled materials (cardboard packaging used by Ülker)
- to keep construction methods cost-effective, standard and simple
Children enter the experience through the Castle Area that provides an unusual gathering and playing space. From here they are led along the Art History Tunnel with interactive Stations related to respective art history periods. Three self-contained Action Spaces are entered from the Tunnel, however, carefully placed openings provide opportunity to raise children’s curiosity and interest.
Colours and materials are kept simple and consistent: beside Ülker’s corporate red only white and grey are used. A special more playful element is provided by cardboard boxes, which, like Lego-blocks, create the Castle, the Cave, storage, seating, etc.
The project was communicated to the client and contractor through a 3D model.
