As we finished the 1 st class, having a undergraduate portfolio became utmost concern for each of us. And as you catched, i have a “fresh” undergrad. Portfolio, too. 🙂 as i finish digital paging, the whole work including amateur photography will be available on site. KEEP IN TOUCH!
Here i publish the cover page only, wait for whole!
Today, we had our final jury as the final step of Architectural Design Course. We were responsible for the whole process to see a programmed design at the and of it. In this project’s case, It was about continuity of spaces, which is also mentioned as flow of spaces. Also the module based work was a design choice of mine, which were the use of C sectioned elements.
As masses, we were responsible for designing a mass quality in the project, too. And i used 2 different mass qualities first as thickness, second as expression.
As hinges, I used 3 types of hinges, which were separated into 2 different groups as, space definer and not element of space definitions. In that case, I had 2 surface hinges and 1 texture hinge. For more spatial use based hinges, I prefered to work with gaps, which were going larger by 2.5, 5, 7 centimeters.
Here is the poster of the work, presented in final jury.
After we refine all the actors we have, we were responsible for 3 different mediums to work on. first was to work on 2D field, which gave us the references of first 3D structure. After we designed all these fields, another step which was about designing a transparent and layered composition, has began. Then after having that structure, with references to our those works, we designed a 3D grid to work in, by zooming in and out. Then that 3D structure became our base, to built a 3D space experiences set.
Here is last to levels of designin in 3D.
In recent days, we -as TEDU ARCH students- made an architectural trip to METU. we were responsible for a thematic photo essay which would represent some surface / 3D hinges in a theme. So, it was our first theme based photo shooting trip, which made us gain basic experiences about photography, with Emrah Köşgeroğlu. Here are some theme based photographs of mine, from the trip. Also in the post below, There’s more which are let’s say out of theme, but nice.
While having the trip in Istanbul, we also went to the construction area and field office of the Halic Metro Crossing Bridge. In field office, we have been informed about the progress, and the main structure/methods. It was a big honour to be there and listen the project from one of it’s architects Ali Ulvi ALTAN who is also in Istanbul Herritage Commitee. And also, having that much information about “constructing a bridge” is really interesting and helpful for me. By the way, all trip long we were with Istanbul Technical University students and an instructor who provided important opportunities for these special meetings and visits.
Also, while were having this meeting i realized that we had 2 guests too, who were there for the protection of old history of Istanbul. That two guys were there for the architectural solutions on “protecting the historical context”. This was also an important point which were clearly representing the given importance on historical context of Istanbul.
