Architectural workshops Bending, Kicking, Stretching: Playing with Distortion

Monika Sosnowska. Exercises in Construction, Bending
22 February – 11 April 2020
13:00–15:00

DESCRIPTION

Garage invites kids and adults to take part in architectural workshops inspired by the installation Exercises in Construction, Bending by the Polish artist Monika Sosnowska.

Informed by a specific interest in architectural form, material, and construction, Sosnowska’s practice investigates their properties, the possible ways to work with form and transform materials, as well as emotional perception of architectural spaces and surfaces by humans.

Each session focuses on the study of a particular material used in architecture and design—such as clay, metal, plastics, and paper—and examines its properties. The course tutors, professional architects and pedagogues Maria Vaisman and Nikolay Fugarov, will encourage participants to explore materials through the prism of the fundamental architectural triad—utility, durability, and beauty, try various methods of material processing, and find forms or constructions that fit each of the materials.
