IoA Sliver Gallery Cerebral Hut, May 7, 7pm
Cerebral Hut, Güvenc Özel
We traditionally assume that the built environment, whether in the architectural or the urban scale influences our psyche. What if we can reverse that relationship? What if a kinetic architecture could establish a direct connection between the thoughts of its user and itself in order to reconfigure its physical boundaries accordingly? Originally conceived for the Istanbul Design Biennial (2012) “Cerebral Hut” is an interactive installation that explores the relationship between technology, movement and human thought. It is the first interactive space in the world that morphs physically according to brain activity. Based on data it receives from a sensor that detects concentration levels of participants, it kinetically re-configures itself continuously and through time.
Güvenç Özel is Assistant Professor at Studio Greg Lynn, Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. “Cerebral Hut” is made possible through the generous contributions of die Angewandte, Institute of Architecture, Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts, and Istanbul Museum of Modern Art.
Installation Opening: May 7th, 7 pm, Angewandte Lichthof 1

Austrian National Award for IoA Publication "Unbuildable Tatlin?!
“Unbuildable Tatlin?!” was given the National Award (Staatspreis) as “Austria’s Most Beautiful Book 2012” in the category of non-fiction and academic books. The award was handed over on 22 April 2013 by Federal Minister Dr Claudia Schmied. The publication, edited by Klaus Bollinger, Dean of the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and Florian Medicus appeared in 2012 in the series Edition Angewandte / Springer Verlag WienNewYork, edited by Rector Gerald Bast. Paulus M. Dreibholz (Atelier Dreibholz) was responsible for the design and Holzhausen Druck GmbH for the production. The National Award is presented annually in the competition Austria's Most Beautiful Books.http://www.schoenstebuecher.at/
IoA Sliver Lecture Chris Bangle, April 22, 5pm
Chris Bangle "Design Forces: Personalities/Interference/Interpretation"
Chris Bangle would like to re-open in his talk the discussion of Design and Humanism with obser- vations and commentary from his experiences on the forces involved in the creative process and how there may be a chance to return value to the “Human-in-the-loop” – if, that is, we designers are willing to re-think our role.
Chris Bangle is best known for his tenure as Chief of Design for the BMW group, where he was responsible for bringing the designs and engineer- ing of the BMW, Mini Cooper, and Rolls Royce into the twenty-first century.
After pushing car design language to its limits for 28 years, Chris Bangle announced his departure in 2009 from the auto industry. Since then, he has been pursuing his own design-related endeavors from his studio in Italy working with global clients such as Samsung, Hennessy and Adidas.

IoA Sliver Lecture Achim Menges, April 23,7pm
Achim Menges "Material Computation"
Computation, in its most basic meaning, refers to the processing of information. In this way, both mechanic processes operating in the binary realm of the digital, as well as material processes operating in the complex domain of the physical can be considered computational. The lecture will introduce Achim Menges’ work on exploring the territory where machine computation and material computation potentially overlap, where they not simply co-exist but intensely interact in the design process. He will present the related design research of his institute at the University Stuttgart along
a series of constructed prototype buildings. This will include the institute’s latest research pavilion, which was entirely constructed by robotic carbon and glass fibre filament winding processes.
