Scaling a bed?

A bed is almost like our entire home today. We do not only sleep on it but we eat, read and work. So a bed has multi-functions. Furthermore, it is a personal space, even though it can be shared for a short time and attain publicity, it is still remembered with the term privacy. So what happens when we re-size or multiply it?

These images above were through my first interpretations. A bed that is resized can have different functions and loose its initial purpose of use or multiplication can reduce privacy and such.
On my second analysis, I changed my initiator and worked with a crib. It is different because it changes the position of a man with a bed. It transforms the experience from being ON a bed to being IN a bed.


Case Study: Design with CODING

CODING is a word that can be easily misunderstood in its use as an architectural term. Coding is about having some decisions beforehand, it can be considered as the initial step of the process of design. Even though some presume that coding is a restriction that is limiting further possibilities and variations of design when it is treated as an element of design, it can work as a regulator that is ensuring the unity of overall decisions.

I believe that it is better to analyze coding through a case study which is Borneo and Sporenburg (by WEST8) in this case. In B&S the regulating effect of the codes is very legible form the landscape since the first codes are about the arrangement of land use. Continue reading “Case Study: Design with CODING”

Sometimes wonders come out from boredom

Seems like having no wi-fi yesterday activated my productivity. I was looking for some activities that can do without using the internet and luckily I had my dear Photoshop. So, tried to juxtapose one of my earlier watercolor drawing and another handwriting which once occurred from boredom. That’s why sometimes you shouldn’t wait for an inspiration to come for you, but just TRY!
I believe that they are more inspired together. What do you think?thisisurlife5


“the HOUSE” final proposal

Since the final jury has come, we should be making our designs complete and ready to be presented. During the time since the second preliminary jury, many things changed in my project yet not as dramatic as before. The open circulation spaces were the most challenging part of my design when the climate and air conditions are concerned. In that, the semi enclosed spaces started to dominate my design and the approach to the second level. With this way i believe that I found a more effective way of placing my open spaces inside the enclosed ones.

Here are the drawings and sketches I produced for the final:
