AA graduates unveil Fibrous Room

These images show the latest stage of a collaborative project undertaken by graduates from the Architectural Association (AA) in London ( click here to see large images ).

Called the Fibrous Room, the experimental installation on display at the Garanti Gallery in the Turkish capital hopes to explore the 'evolving structural logic' of reinforced concrete, and is intended as a manufacturing machine of fibrous concrete structures.

The project was conceived by Nilüfer Kozikoglu – a graduate from the AA's Design Research Laboratory who runs a practice called Tuspa in Istanbul – and Claudia Pasquero and Marco Poletto, AAInter10 tutors and heads of practice ecoLogicStudio.

The images show the concrete being pumped into the geometric structure on installation – it will now take three weeks for the concrete to cure.

The team hopes the investigation will lead to the development of a concrete woven structure technique that will be used in the design of a pavilion for the Istanbul Capital of Culture 2010.
