This is proposal from DIZARH, located in Istanbul, Turkey.
Description from designer :
Our proposal for Education centre in Istanbul contains in its essence the four elements, the four natural forces. We combined them to create the vision of the whole – the fifth element. The fifth element is man, the strength, the spirit, which allows a space to exist, to breathe, to move, to burn.
Many theories exist concerning the classical elements. It’s said that they reflect the basic parts and principles, acting both as fundament and being a part of everything that surrounds us. According to the Greek, the most renowned theory, the elements are fire, earth, air and water. All of them exist in close relation. Air is thought of as the unifying one, fire represents power, water covers most of the Earth and earth is the fundament of our lives. Solid and stable the earth is the base for all human creations.
In order to harness the power and strength of the elements we first need to know them better, learn to protect ourselves from them and start living in harmony with them. That is why our concept is called “The Fifth Element”. As the fifth element, it’s up to us to learn how to manage our relationship with nature. The scale of the damage resulting from each disaster depends on the preparedness of people and on their adequate actions.
