Arch 202 is the second architectural design course in the curriculum. Based on the basic knowledge and skills gained during the previous semester, this semester aims to develop and articulate the understanding of space as a lived-in experience and its fundamental relationship to placemaking. During the semester, there will be two design assignments, site visits and several seminars related to the topics of discussion. Our main topics of interest will be space, place and context, and their interrelation with the concept of tectonics. We will discuss the concept of tectonics in terms of siting, climatic and structural performance through a shorter preliminary assignment, and then through a longer main assignment with more complexity; requiring the students to address site conditions, program, materials and structural system. The site of the second assignment is usually outside of the city, in the countryside, where it is still possible to learn from a strong vernacular building culture. A short site trip of 2-3 days is an integral part of the semester and acts as a learning tool that challenges students’ preconceptions of built environment through a critical visit to the countryside, where nature and culture interact with each other in a multitude of ways.


The second and major project of spring term 2019 is the design of communal housing with workshops and production facilities for a group of people moving to the island of Cunda in the AyvalÄąk archipelago. There are three sites determined for the project by tutor groups. The aim is to develop design decisions based on the idea of communal living, and provide an architectural solution with different degrees of privacy. The housing clusters that will cater to the needs of its constant residents, as well as temporary guests and daily visitors. The historical characteristics of the island of Cunda, its present daily life and the natural characteristics of the individual project sites takes part in the formation of the design ideas. Other main influences are climatic performance and the notion of tectonics; therefore, there is a special emphasis on structural design, use of materials and relationship to site at different scales.
