About Iaac Global Summer School, 2017

Tehran, Inside Out
What defines a smart city? The fluent transmission of information? The level of awareness of what happens in its multiple layers of life/data? The way such data is being analyzed and makes feedback? An online correlation between goods, services, energies and people? These are all valid phenomena for a smart city but how such city would interact with its citizens in their day-to-day lives, for their feelings and emotions? How such city would communicate with people’s “Joy” or “Sadness”? How “Anger”, “Fear” or even “Disgust” is going to be observed and reflected back? What if our future smart cities could feel us, and reflect our collective emotions?

Tehran Inside Out is a step towards that level of smartness and believes that a city could have interactions with its citizens emotionally, measure it and reflect it back to their lives. A city would be a much nicer place to live if it accommodates devices that could reflect such interactions with its people. Tehran Inside Out will focus on such program with two main agendas: While at first, the gathering, transforming, analyzing and post processing the desired data needs lots of techniques and technologies, the output devices are also equally important and are going to be digitally designed and fabricated for public spaces. Designing such system would both digitally and physically is the agenda which is going to be discovered at GSS Tehran 2017.


The course will be taught by tutors from different fields structured in two subsequent phases. Over the first week of the workshop, computational design systems will be introduced in a series of intensive ‘tooling-up’ sessions as the basis for investigating associative design concepts and methodologies. The aim of these design exercises is to introduce expertise in open-source technologies. In a second stage of the workshop, students will develop design proposals responding to studio briefs focusing on developing new models of urban evolution.

Platform 28 was founded in Tehran in 2015 as a non-profit multidisciplinary platform for art, design and architecture which creates links between Iranian and international designers, through diverse range of projects. Almost as big as a shipping container, Platform 28 is a multifunctional apparatus that constantly changes from one function to another. These functions often vary from an exhibition space to a library or a workshop and the spatial transformation is made possible by means of mobile units.

Platform 28’s interest is to find an architectural language in four specific categories: The built environment; the visual arts; wearables; and product design. These categories are curated according to our seasonal themes. Our main objective is to render architecture as a multidisciplinary field with many ways of expression that is not limited to the design of buildings and cities only.
