The first jury of the term has just passed and here you can follow my progress up to now.
The “What if” studies helped me a lot to find a tool to apply my ideas to the site.
After the critics now I am focusing on my playground idea in a manner that it works with the grid of the structural system of the warehouse building. So, the playground is actually the play of surface. In short what I am doing is about the movement on the surface. After the critics, I can say that I better do not exaggerate the dimensions of the spaces or the masses, that occur with the play of surfaces, since they should not dominate the warehouse.
The project of this term is “factory as a generator of learning”. We initiated the studies with the analysis of the site from different scales. Here are my initial attempts and proposals.
Our traditional scale studies were initiated with “screen” this term. Scaling a screen? Multiplying and resizing it! What is the function of a screen? Screen today has a great variety of meanings. A playground, notebook, computer, poster, step and many others whom I cannot imagine now. Yet the scale of a tablet is not comparable with the scale of a billboard screen since they have completely different purposes and requires different dimensions. Furthermore, it is not only the scale changing but the relation between human body and screen as well. Our reactions bodily experiences are also changing according to the changing sizes and functions. Continue reading “Scaling a Screen?”
This is such a beneficial course for me that after learning about shading systems I, without noticing, started to guess whether its a northern facade or eastern while walking on the street and looking at the buildings around. The shading elements for each facade may differ through weather conditions, the angle of the sun or even in the daytime. Here is a case study of shading systems over Tsinghua University Central Canteen Building.

RE FUNCTIONING, RESTORATION
Hello there! For the second term of the 3rd-year studio, we’re going to be dealing with Industrial Site that was left abandoned within the center of the city of Eskişehir. For this aim, to comprehend the significance of the factories there, their meaning and effect to the lifestyle we initially searched and documented the history of the site with a great support of information from Hüma Tülce’s previous studies. In the attached image you can find about the factories and the transformation of the city in years.
