For this project was clear that we wanted to create a visual way to share the knowledge generated. Apart of the day to day review, the How to video and the physical objects in the space, we thought necessary to develop those info-graphics with al the necessary details for people to understand them and even to make their own. It includes:
- Name of the author,
- Geographic location for people to see it in place,
- Link to 123D app gallery for people to download the model
With this information we believe most people with a computer could replicate the process. However it could be improved by designing a way for people to adapt the plug in to their own space.

the video captures some of today moments. We will try to produce every day a short caption.
Today was about sharing our insights with two focus
- Adhocracy exhibition: We all searched the exhibition picking up projects that we believe are relevant to take further
- Galate district (Istanbul): The past days we have been walking around capturing samples of adhoc attitude, or opportunities where Adhocracy could offer a solution.
The process develop like this:
- Pick up a inspiring project from the Adhocracy exhibition. Why?
- Pick up 3 pictures from the Galata district and mention how Adhocracy is being implemented by the citizens, or how Adhocracy could be implemented based on the projects you have seen
- Cluster insights into themes and find a title for each cluster
- Make questions which related those themes and challenges we find in Istanbul
- Select most relevant and make teams around them (each one chooses the topic he is most interested in
- Brainstorm concepts that could solve those challenges
- Select one (per team) and develop
We did rounds sharing with each other our thoughts and trying to identify challenges that could be:
- Resolved in 7 days (or at least provide an insightful prototype)
- Relevant to the topic of Adhocracy
- Compelling for us
Not having a clear challenge to solve, and trying to keep open for unexpected directions did slow the process. We wanted to go in depth. Have an understanding of the topic and the different perspectives that each one brings, so that a series of related concepts come out. So we couldn’t arrive to a clear concept, but tomorrow we will choose a clear direction.
Our problem is self chosen. We know that it would have been much easier to develop a concept before, and exhibit it here. However our expectation goes a little bit further, we want to work with what have been done to date, what is present, and see how it can be develop or applied. We want to do something that is alive and adaptable. The question is: Does this kind of process provide with, not with the so called innovative or new, but plain good results?

The biennial is defining it self -and fighting for- adhocracy. And even if we still are in times of bureaucracy, we definitely want to contribute to make the change.
The exhibition already comprehend a collection of some of the most interesting projects done in the past years which contribute to the ‘Third industrial revolution’ towards ‘ The world of people who make things’ (as The Economist, describes). The exhibition, doesn’t just include digital manufacturing and 3D printers but also documents the re-appropriation of public space, open source hardware and crowd funding as samples of how people is taking the action into their hands.
Looking at those samples we see our role here as connectors between all of this samples of projects and the local needs. And our goal is to held a lab where we can show how this knowledge and tools can be applied to an specific challenge. We came to Istanbul without a clear product to develop but based on the time, tools and materials available, we want to:
- Build on the knowledge, know-how and tolls exhibited,
- Link local needs and skills with a global movement,
- Make it a public intervention, so that people can experience it,
- Publish instructions, so that the knowledge created can be shared and build upon.
You can see live updates on the process in the above calendar
- 16 & 17 October: Getting to know each other and the space: Meeting collaborators, Meeting the city and the locals, discovering the challenges and possible focus areas, researching the tools and skills available.
- 18 October: Open Session to share insights, understand frame and brainstorm ideas
- 19 & 20 October:Development of ideas. Designing details, Looking at the production, Connection to locals (needs, skills, materials, tools)
- 21,22,23 & 24 October: Prototyping the selected concept and making instructions.
- 25 October: Present outputs.
