Center for Media Arts Colaborations

Exposed life proposed a center for media art collaborations with regards to improving interdisciplinary work between deferent fields of design and creative arts. The building consists of open spaces and living spaces. It allows users to live and work simultaneously while in the building. It locates in Enghelab Avenue, the neighborhood best known for its art galleries and art schools.


From the beginning of the industrial revolution and spread of mass production in the 18th century, factories entered the construction cycle as a place provided for mass production of industrial goods. In the middle of 20th-century, artists increased the amount of their artifacts using the processes of mechanical reproduction. It was in this era that media of reproduction became the center of attention for media theorists.

Like factories that operated as social seeds for the economy, exposed life meant to function so for its surrounding urban environment. Some artists (like Andy Warhol) named their studios, factories. Some others get the abandoned factories as a place to show case their artifacts.

Exposed life tries to resemble a factory building by open spaces that are provided in between servant levels. These free spaces can change their use according to further modifications by their residents. Artists can also live in the habitat spaces provided by the building. Accessories like fabrication, print, computer labs, etc. Are provided in order to maximize the time artists have to work.
