In 2019, MARCH will become partner of “Drevolution”, a workshop/festival of modern wooden architecture that will take place from July 20 to August 4 at Artplay Design Center.
This year, Drevolution will move to tight urban environment. The research will deal with the combination of post-industrial and wooden. Workshop participants will try to find out whether the “wood” and new technologies for its processing are in demand in the active development of technology parks.
Senior students, young architects, designers, sculptors, joiners and carpenters who want to learn about the culture of working with wood, build an architectural object with their own hands, and believe in themselves are invited to participate in the festival.
Participation in the workshop is free. Moreover, teams are provided with all basic materials (lumber, fasteners, paint) and tools (miter and circular saws, screwdrivers, jigsaws). The materials that are not on this list can be acquired by the teams at their own expense.
In order to participate, you must complete a task on "windows". Applicants are invited to formulate a concept that should have graphic and written parts. You can present a window from different angles - as an architectural detail, as a functional necessity, as a philosophical phenomenon, whether you are looking in a window from this or that side, or you are being looked at, and what is visible through it.
The proposed concepts will not be implemented during the festival workshop. The assignment only helps to assess the level of ideas and their compatibility with the vision of the curator. The participants are selected by Nikolai Belousov, curator of the "Drevolution", and VELUX company, partner of the programme. The main evaluation criteria are originality and reasonable wording.
