A workshop space, built using recycled materials, for the Ülker’s Children’s Art Workshop at Art International Fair in İstanbul 2015.

The design of the workshop space is clean and legible to let the content of the workshop stand out.

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.
