Sustainable Design

The sustainable design is something we commonly hear but do not know for real. Up till now, before having this course on building technologies in architecture, I didn’t know much about it and what is worse is that I thought it was only about the use of green. Especially through this assignment in which we were given a specific form of the building and a specific climate condition I had a chance to look for sustainable solutions including natural ventilation, shading, passive heating, and material selection etc. I know that I am very new to it and might miss out many points so please comment your ideas and suggestions. You can find out more on the poster attached.

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:
