Being a representation of the past meeting the contemporary, the design protects the castle walls and integrates them into the daily life of the complex with platforms designed within the historical courtyard, recreating a new topography for its new functions. The exhibition spaces are located here, rendering the castle walls as a part of the exhibition, reflecting the traces of history. Rising over the historical courtyard, the white box located above the platforms provides a new landmark with its dynamic form. This dynamism is also reflected inside of the mass with open spaces on different levels flowing into each other. On the main entrance the curvature of the topography mirrors the bottom form of the landmark building defined by the natural slope of the conference center. This eye shaped opening highlights the entrance creating a more spacious perception and instinctively invites the visitors inside.

contradiction makes us productive.” Wolfgang von Goethe PERMANENT - TEMPORARY CONTRADICTION

Urban node structures, carrying pipes for water and electricity, are constructed before disaster and serve to environment for irrigation and lighting. On the other hand, the housing is designed with modularity principles. The smallest module consists wet areas. Hence, when parts get into each other, only volume carried is the wet spaces.

The project site is surrounded by low height housing blocks to the north and 20 m high mixed use buildings to the west. On the contrary, waves touch the ground to the east, due to the absence of any built form. The landscape of the mid-side is determined by sections obtained from the historic part of the city to reflect the existing scale and relationship between the buildings.

Known with its independent stance, Middle East Technical University (METU) has showed an opponent manner to the construction of 8-lane road. During the protests against cutting 3000 trees, METU and 100. Yil neigbourhood could not act as a one body. Knowing the importance of community involvement to maintain public areas, this project aims to integrate students with 100. Yil community and revive the memory of the forest. In Re.Form.MAT, the main orthogonal module is the distance between the trees, roughly 7m. A second

Zafertepe is a district of Ankara, Turkey. The project site is a north facing side of a steep valley and creates smaller valleys in itself because of the topography. As a concept, original condition of the site is emphasized and a building in harmony with the topography is created. Hence; crests are elevated and, valleys which not suitable for construction are designed to

emphasize the depth. The slab geometry shapes the tower by rotating in various directions and angles. Therefore, interior layout can be organized so that flats can be adapted to different size families at each floor. An attempt to achieve dynamism through differential lighting has been made by introducing flowing floors and rotating glass surfaces that highlight the facade at different times of the day, thereby improving the vertical aesthetics and internal ambience. Holes in the terrace slab bring in maximum daylight and prevent the harsh heat from entering the building.

The project area is surrounded by river from west and east, Gazhane Park from north and a ring road from south. Main masses are located considering the privacy and shaped using the axes of unique elements close by. Bartin River, surrounding the project site, has two distributaries and separates town into two. Therefore, social block and landscape are placed according to the focal point where distributaries separate. Education block, on the other hand, takes reference from the historic bridge.

Historic dockyard pavements match with the function of the research and provide a space for researchers to test their designs. These sunken ruins stay beneath the water during flood period. Therefore, no intervention has been done for this area.

A path at the basement floor of the Public Block has a connection with an existing walking path and extends over the river. To increase the public characteristic, other way of the path is designed to reach the upper level of the building with several entrances at each level.
