The following project where selected by our distinguished jury. Thank you everyone for participating. We had a lot of fun organizing and we hope everyone will follow YAF ATLANTA in the future.
Project Name: Public Figure
Leader: Alkanoglu Volkan
PUBLIC FIGURE is an urban device. This proposal for the Young Architects Forum will trigger a larger strategy to integrate exterior public spaces in Atlanta. Architecture as a cultural practice is obliged to create spatial environments that allow communities to grow and engage with each other. Community and public spaces are important cultural areas of our society and need to be upgraded with architectural design ideas that are attractive, functional, and allow for multi-purpose use.
The bold iconic form of the design proposal, its multi-functional use, and the material qualities including transparent, colorful and ephemeral properties, will be an attractor to the public and start a process of urban communication. PUBLIC FIGURE is an urban device that will be used for informal gathering, and for organized events, such as small lectures and receptions of the institution.
