Hybrid dwelling complex is situated close to the city center of Aalborg, Denmark. The objective of the design is to provide a more sustainable lifestyle by architectural and technical means. It has the ambition to attract families from the suburbs to the city thus reducing the energy used for transportation and the overall energy consumption. Also, through the use of passive and active design solutions, the complex achieves to reach the zero energy building standard. Integrated design process has been one of the key issues in the development of the project thus resulting in a tigtly connected technical, social and spatial considerations.
The complex is made up of two blocks named as Northern and Southern. The approach towards the site is based on the idea of transition: Transition between the surrounding city context in the north and the new developments in the south. The facade of the complex overlooking to the city is flat whereas the southern facades are rotated 32 degrees from the north in order to maximize the sunlight hours that the buildings receive in the winter afternoons where families return home from their daily routines. The Northern block takes its reference from the city context
in terms of materiality and scale. On the other hand, the Southern block is focused on recreating a suburban atmosphere through large private gardens and personal entrances directly from the street level. It appears as a seemingly random composition, within a fragmented volume, thus creating a dynamic movement on the site. The space between these two volumes appears as niches allowing the residents to experience a neighbourhood feeling and different atmospheres. Entering the site, the visitor is immediately attracted to the stream which is visually connected to the city.
Living + Circulation
An off-grid cabin designed to serve as an escape from the city life and to provide temporary working environment for artists of different specialisations, situated in the woods by a lake.

and the hill behind. Almost one third of the structure is sunk into the ground, providing the chance to benefit from the temperature of the soil in the winter and summer. The structure is positioned in a way that maximizes passive solar heat gain and minimizes excessive heating by receiving the direct sunlight in the winter. The design of the cabin focuses on relating to the human senses in every sort of way.

The journey starts from the main road, with a 30-minute walk through a road surrounded by the colors of green, changing and thickening with each step. The life in the woods does not provide the comfort the city life possesses but it is full of creativity, calmness and physical interaction. The structure is both negating the ground and dissolving in it, resulting in a form that is in harmony with its envirronment. The cabin is protected by the forest
KINETIC SHELL An origami folded shell form to create a flexible system that responds to the changes in its environment.
‘16 Fall, Knowledge Based Architectural Design
Architectural Design Computing Master’s Programme
Cemre Karaoglan & Ilke Yıldan Cemre / Design Scheme, Digital Model, Programming of Arduino and Motors
As an outcome of the integration of computational tools with architectural design, it becomes possible to design systems that can alter and adapt themselves in relation to their surroundings. In this project, an integrated responsive architectural system is designed in order to achieve a single spatial system that can respond to various environmental parameters (weather, shading, temperature, noise etc.). Towards this aim, an origami folded structure that changes its spatial properties through contraction and expansion was designed in the digital environment and its prototypes were built through the use of an Arduino board. The shell is expected to respond to different external factors depending on its area of use. Initially, the purpose of the structure is chosen as a structure that folds to form a sheltered area when the temperature drops and unfolds to provide ventilation when the temperature rises. It is first modelled in Rhinoceros along with Grasshopper plugins. Several different folding patterns were investigated and a bidirectional origami folding pattern was chosen. Secondly, in order to experiment with materials and form, an infrastructure for a detailed physical model, a prototype was built. Since it was built for an exhibition, it was coded to respond to the proximity of the objects around thus resulting in a more interactive model. The folding pattern can be used in many different scales and for further purposes such as elements in concerts moving with the music, a living wall responding to movement or a sun shelter following the sun path.

Just like languages, it is possible to find rules within dance coreographies. When a dance solo is decyphered into its components, repetitive patterns can be seen easily. If these patterns are interpreted into series of possibilities, then it becomes possible to recreate a new dance solo with the same “grammar”. Towards this aim, Kitri Act 1 ballet solo from Don Quixote is chosen and decomposed into its simplest elements. The order of these elements are decyphered as possibilities and then coded into Processing. Through the use of this code, a symbolic expression of several new dances based on the same rules is produced and
one is chosen. In order to further represent the dances, Grasshopper components are created for each basic element such as jumping, posing and so on. Therefore, it has been possible to create the line of movement for the dancer both for the existing and the recreated dance. A robotic arm following this line with a light on its tip is photographed under long exposure. Especially, the new solos recreated through the use of a “dance grammar” have the potential to give novel results and defining the path for the robotic arm based on their representation presents an attitude focused on the process rather than the final form.
FLOW Thermal rehabilitation & relaxation center in between the villages of Çanakkale, that puts nature in the center of question.
‘16 Spring, Architectural Design Studio VIII
Architecture Bachelor’s Programme Graduation Project
Küçükçetmi, located Çanakkale, is a preserved village with a small population. The project site is connected to the village through a poetic pathway buried inside the green environment, away from the signs of civilization. The project site offers a lot of challenges as it is buried into trees, rocks and a steep slope where nature is the center of question. The area with thousands of tones of green, presents an inspirational scene and a dramatic panaroma. The thermal hub to be established on these hills aims to provide a space for urban people to connect with nature. The journey starts with the pittoresque narrow pathway from the village placed in between olive groves and large pine trees and turns into an act of purification. Not only a physical purification, but also a mental one, relieveing all the stress and burden imposed by the city life.
The sound of the water can be heard from almost everywhere. The water surrounds the site like veins in the body, most of the time accompanying the paths.
The site offers many challenges with a lot of references that are hard to catch at first sight. The topography, characteristic landscape, water sources add up to the functional relations between the units and form the shape. The structure is spread around the site dissolving in the topography and imitating the flow of the water downhill. The elements of the total mass are oriented in a certain way that enhances the continuity of the flow of circulation on every level. The circulation partly dissolves into spaces and partly segregates, forming recreational walkways. These circulation routes are mostly surrounded by thermal water lines. In winter, vapour rises from the water creating a pittoresque scene and a warm circulation route. The spaces are situated in a way that the panaroma of the hills around can be observed from the best vistas. The reinforced concrete is exposed in most parts underlining the strict opposition between nature and the human artifact. Rusty looking plumbing utilities and rough natural stone pattern enhances the connection with the primitive atmosphere of the site.
C O L LECTIVE ISTANB U L A collective modular production space that focuses on the effects of gentrification in Istanbul.
â€˜15 Fall, Architectural Design Studio V Architecture Bachelorâ€™s Programme 3rd year
A place where all that is lost throughout the misguided urban transformation of Istanbul, can be revitalized through collective and productive activities. It is a place where everyone is invited and everything is shared. Different socio-economic groups of society who are set apart by walls come together in this meeting point and produce solutions for their own city. Collective Istanbul is constructed on a space stuck between a metro bridge and two large Genoese Walls. It is situated in a rapidly transforming neighbourhood and city, on the path of metro users of all sorts. The metro bridge is built in the historical part of the city and it dives into the urban pattern in a critical way, dividing old neighbourhoods. The grid of the steel structure takes its references from the legs of the bridge and the walls form the boundaries of the project site. Metal grid grows higher as if trying to race the height of the metro bridge. The structure is flexible enough to respond to the changing needs and growing demand as the grid can be easily filled or emptied in time. Workshops are organised on daily basis and researchers/artists from other cities are invited to stay in the dormitories, which keeps the building functioning 24/7. The workshops aim to unite the craftsmen with hobbyists and street artists with arts school students.

Evka3 is a critical point in Izmir as it is situated in between a tightly packed residential zone accommodating families and students from universities around the meeting point of several public transportation axis. As a focal point in the city, the design of the structure revolves around accessibility and public use. The mass is shaped through the existing pedestrian flow and it aims to integrate with the environment through the loops created within the circulation.

In the society, we envision a future where every individual is aware of the impact they have on the world and ready to bear their responsibilities. Schools play a tremendous role in building a sustainable future, providing an environment for the next generation to take shape in. Therefore, in our project we tried to create an atmosphere suitable for a child to become a reasonable, responsible individual with an inherent love towards animals and nature. An education system defined not only by the curriculum, but also by the daily activities and features around. A project where open areas are designed to maximize daylight exposure, providing natural ventilation and playground for its inhabitants.
