The workshop series – ‘Mimar Oluyorum’ (I am becoming an architect) held in SALT galata, Istanbul. Prismatic powers was one of the workshop topics, aiming high school students to gain interest on architecture and realize the geometric relationships of different 3 dimensional shapes created by folding surfaces.

First set was to draw, cut and fold surfaces to obtain a three dimensional object – a prism – and start to discover its potentials as spatial properties. Like light, sound, shadow, height, etc.

Second set started by creating a formal rectangular prism and cutting it in a way to obtain diamond shaped prisms, however also by staggering those objects, they started to act as different spaces come together, and new problems occurred with their gatherings.
