The project is on show at the Galata Greek Primary School for the Istanbul Design Biennial 2014, which continues until 14 December. “These tendencies are shaping a future 24-hour non-stop city, drawing no difference between night and day,” she said. It is presented in a dark room, so visitors need to use torches to find their way around. Capeille has also designed a kit of tools to help people experience the darkness, including a glove for unscrewing light bulbs, a set of headphones that isolate night sounds, a pair light-extracting goggles and a notebook with black carbon pages for “blind sketching”. The first is a “pre-reverie observatory” that visitors could climb up to survey the nighttime landscape. Istanbul Design Biennial 2014: nighttime has become “an endangered species” says architecture graduate Clio Capeille, who has designed architectural structures especially for use after dark (+ slideshow). These structures would be accompanied by night-blooming flowers such as Ipomoea alba (moonflower) and Datura inoxia (thorn-apple), which would define the borders of the nighttime territory. There’s also a horizontal chamber to facilitate the transition from light to dark, a “nycto-therapy” centre to treat the human biological tolerance of real darkness, and a cinema where natural blackness is used to trigger viewers’ imaginations.
