‘motion in the shell’ is the end result of integrating construction traditions in nature with modern and digital fabrication technologies, inspired by the unique mediterranean geographical location. the two main shells produced are designed as tools that create different areas of experience within the nature, using different materials and different fabrication techniques. melike altinisik architects takes part with their work addressing the theme of ‘continuity’ at the 4. international architectural biennale antalya 2017. ‘motion in the shell’ can be visited between september 22 – october 15 in antalya, turkey.

while the shell represents a static concept for its own existence, what provides the ‘continuity’ which makes it persistent, begins with the human being. in this sense, the person encounters with the shell, explores the object, and then begins to experience with it. the user, who is in the center of istanbul based firm melike altinisik architects‘ ‘motion in the shell’, goes on his or her quest for ‘continuity’ through this individual experience. the work is nourished by the search for the permanence of the ‘memories’ moving into the future, while creating ‘moments’ that produce encounters.
