Patternitechture #4, titled “Boundaries that expand; Where we Stand.” places the focus of its projects and programs on the exploration of the “World of new patterns”.Through this lens, it aims to study the relationship of patterns with the city, nature, society and people within the context of the contemporary world.
Patterns are a medium to recognize and redefine the world. They enable us to establish meaningful connections with objects and ideas. A structured, controllable, and replicable connection that shapes our environment and provides a foundation for extending our perceptions and creating new forms. The pursuit of discovering and establishing order, and controlling chaos in this environment, has not only been an endeavor in the realm of knowledge but has also been embraced by many artists to create mirrors of the world they perceive. Through the creation of abstract worlds, they celebrate this manifest order.
Although we discuss the extension and repetition of structures, replicable patterns are not condemned to eternal repetition; rather, they possess a highly dynamic and living nature. Like living beings, they are born, grow, mature, and ultimately give way to new patterns. Today we witness that advanced tools related to artificial intelligence are erasing the boundaries of knowledge production and toolmaking across all fields, altering the previous structures of society. Yet, the average user has not clearly defined their relationship with digital tools. We face a new generation of knowledge and technology that has redefined our interaction with subjects and, now, with the accelerating emergence of innovative tools, the question arises: how can the modern human redefine their relationship with new patterns?
Patternitechture has always been devoted to exploring patterns that have been effective in shaping the built environment, providing not only a space for reflecting contemporary designers’ efforts but also an opportunity to create new patterns that pave the way for addressing the contemporary human’s demands from their living environment. This event invites all enthusiasts as an opportunity for idea exchange and discussion about the role of patterns in architecture and art. It encourages participation in this shared quest, creating a unique, inspiring, and transformative space.
