‘YEKPARE’ (monolithic)

“”Yekpare” is a storyteller which narrates the 8500 year story of Istanbul. The story embraces symbols from Pagans to Roman Empire, from Byzantine Empire to Latin Empire, and finally from Ottoman Empire to Istanbul at the present day.Haydarpaşa Train Station, with its brilliant architectural forms, is the building on which the story is projected. The connection between middle east to west has been provided by Istanbul and Haydarpaşa since 1906. In the 50’s it served as a door for millions of internal emigrants who have triggered the chaos in Istanbul’s dialectical daily life scenes.The project’s conceptual, political and geographical positioning, the location’s depth of field and the fact that the entire show can be watched from Kadıköy coast; make “Yekpare” a dramatic presentation.The first day of the performance also marks the 47th deathday of Nazım Hikmet Ran, the famous Turkish poet. We started out with a quote from his epic novel, “Human Landscapes from My Country”: “At Haydarpaşa Train Station, in the spring of 1941, it is three o’clock. Sun, exhaustion and rush lay on the stairs…”

Villa Dali in The Netherlands by 123DV Architecture

This home, called Villa Dali by 123DV Architecture, is spectacular. It might not be for everyone, but if you love architecture or art (or both) I bet you’re gonna love this one. It was also selected for the WAN long list for Best House of the Year, 2009.

“Home is where the art is” is the theme of this home, which captures the character of Dali, Jugendstill forms, Spanish facades and nautical life in one villa.

The clients asked for a very personal house which would reflect their passions. They are nautical minded and have a love of art, sculptures and especially the work of Salvador Dali. During the initial design discussions 123DV architecture were also shown pictures of ancient Spanish architecture. They were fascinated by the closed white stucco facades and metal fences in Jugendstill design. So, the challenge was to combine in one villa the beautiful Jugendstill forms, the closed facades, the treasures of the diving world and the unique works of the artist Dali.

For the design of the house, 123DV Architecture made use of the Paranoiac-critical method by Salvador Dali (creating optical illusions). The result is a cylindrical white stucco main building with a nautilus spiral structure inside; representing the world of diving. The closed facade facing the street represents the so called Spanish architecture with a blown up Jugendstill pattern in the six meter wooden panel as the entrance. In the center of the house there is a double story cylindrical space. The furniture has also been custom designed. Traces of Dali’s fluid watch art can be found in their design.

Project: Villa Dali
Firm: 123DV Architecture
Location:
Vroondaal, near The Hague, The Netherlands
Completed: 2009

The pavilion is located at the Hakone Open-Air Museum, a unique open museum located in one of the most visited tourist spots in Japan. Woods of Net was added to the collection of art works as part of their 40th anniversary.

“This is a permanent pavilion for a net artist, Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam. The artist knitted the net entirely by hands, which is designed for children to crow in, roll around, and jump on the net. It was easy for us to see the artwork being outside even when it cannot be exposed to rain or ultraviolet light. We wanted to design a space as soft as the forest where the boundary between outside and inside disappears. The space attracts people like campfire. The children play inside of the net just as fire and parents sit around and lay on the woods.”

“”The structure is entirely composed of timbers without any metal parts. 320 cubic meter of timber members are used and there is nothing same among all the 589 members. The latest structural program was developed for the pavilion, but the joint techniques are derived from thousands years old Japanese wooden temples in Nara and Kyoto. As long as the proper maintenance is done, it is capable of existing over 300 years. This is the oldest and the latest structure in the world.”
