  2. 2. Our approach of design is also inspired by… Culture is simply what gives meaning to actions, which it does by providing a sense of coherence or patterning and predictability. It provides the lens through which one interprets events, scenes, and actions. Robert Gordon
  3. 3. What to look and observe?An underlying shared system ofinformation and knowledge that ismanifested through patterns of norms,behaviors and signifiers.
  4. 4. Main ArgumentBy observing the change in notion ofculture, we aim to explore dynamics ofculture via inspecting the everyday lifepractices, which are shaped bymodernization, performed in publicspaces through urban equipment.
  5. 5. Method and ApproachInitiativeelements and Origins Needs e.g.History Politics Practices in ContextHow can we read the meanings of practices?
  6. 6. Lack ofcommunication, Needs of people Urban Socialization, Equipments, Recreation Activites Loitering is observed to be a repetitive motive in urban spaces.

  15. 15. LoiteringThrough intersection of „Lack of urban equipment and space for socialization‟ and „The need for existence in urban/public/social space‟Practiced in Urban SpaceTo loiter as a habit and loitering areas as habitusLoitering as an activity: „Doing nothing is doing somethingSubversion is createdLived Space is createdVandalism and „Bad Habits‟ are seen as material manifestation

  19. 19. LoiteringArgument: A practice that is acted in certain spaces, Loitering is ahabit and habitus that is caused with the lack of urban space forsocializing and the need for art of being / existence in socialspace. Due to safety reasons however, loitering connotes withnegative implications and furthermore illegal in some places.Can we create positive implications through understanding andencouraging the practice through an interactive installation?
  20. 20. Design Proposals1- Loitering Area2- Tracking Installation3- How to Loiter / Positions
  21. 21. Design Proposals1- Loitering AreaA space that loitering is encouragedSigns as please loiter, you can loiter here‟People are encouraged to put waste or put sth personal in order to create personal space through material manifestation
  22. 22. Design Proposals2- Tracking Installation People that are spending time in a certain place, sitting, walking, loitering, are tracked by a camera and the motives are reflected in the same place to make them notice their practice.
  23. 23. Design Proposals3- How to Loiter / PositionsSpaces in which loitering is common are observed and loitering methods are studiedin order to come up with loitering styles. Shapes or silhouettes are painted/reflectedin the space in order to attract attention to habit and habitus.
  24. 24. Local Marketplaces (Bazaars)
  25. 25. Local Marketplaces (Bazaars)As a result of commercial activities, spaces are created due toconvenience of variety of products, availability and ease oftransportation. Consumption Communication Doing activities Choice Local Socialization Marketplace Intimacy, trustPublic, social and political reasons create local marketplace spaces but it turns into a representational space by the involvement of people.
