[Intensive] Care Collective (ICC)

Istanbul, Turkey
[Intensive] Care Collective was formed on the occasion of the open call for the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. ICC members are scholars, educators, researchers, and practitioners who work and live in different locations, and yet are all deeply connected to Turkey through their practices, research, and other kinships. ICC mobilizes feminist methodologies in the decision-making processes and, values collectivity as opposed to individual leadership models.

[Intensive] Care


Towards a just and ethical practice
[Intensive] Care exhibition proposal tackles our world's current climate, economic and political emergency conditions and proposes a care-based framework applied to architecture and spatial practice.

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

[Intensive] Care seeks care (full) architectural and spatial practices, its components and potential for fostering new relations, networks, and power of changing our world and ways of living. ICC believes that the current state of mainstream architectural practice is not sustainable as some claim to be: it is extractive (extracting wealth from land, resources, and labor), exclusive (practice and a consumer good for the privileged -who can afford), and constantly narrowing its practice to growth, development, and innovation by disregarding the costs it is creating on people and the environment. Conventionally, architectural practice is not held accountable for this crisis condition we are in. But, can we, the practitioners, educators, and thinkers of architecture, shift our modus operandi to one that also includes responsibility, that is in line with ethics of care, and operates on maintaining, continuing, and repairing the world?
