This project’s design approach aims to create spatial and programmatic strategies that manifest the decentralization of the camp facilities and create a community outside the boundaries of refugee camps. Beginning of the project starts with the detailed research about immigration maps of the refugees, their nationalities and their lifestyle. Regarding to these researches, the existing Elaionas refugee camp has evolved. The integration of refugees to the immediate Athenian neighbourhood creates a re-new community tha will invigorate financially and socially both the existing and the refugee population. In this industralized area where is so close to the city center, The Polikarpou avenue is the medium to connect urban voids with new temporary and permanent programs.

GUGGENHEIM REDUX School: CCNY | Fall 2016 Instructor: Prof. Jacop Alspector Location: Manhattan, New York

The purpose of this design project is interventions, reinventions and disruptions of the contemporary art museum. The existing building which provides additional spaces for the museum is the main input for design process. After many observations about current situation and the needs of the Guggenheim Museum, this design came up and took the place of the existing building. The main characteristics of the new additional building are designed against to the horizontal movements and the solidity of the Guggenheim Museum.

GREEN WALL School: CCNY | Fall 2016 Instructor: Prof. Ahu Aydogan Akseli Location: Multiple

This green wall is designed as a part of the dynamic vegetation systems course. The purpose of this project is to enhance the knowledge about building energy systems and how to integrate green wall modules in a building. Modular systems are easy for installation and each module can be accessible. After the CFD Analysis, the best slope version was founded and fabricated. After the mechanical system installation, plants have placed and units stacked to each other. With this green wall system, the expected benefits for interior building spaces are improved air quality, heating/ cooling energy cost reductions and noise level reductions.

DESIGN SCHOOL School: ITU | Spring 2015 Instructor: Prof. HuseyÄąn Kahvecioglu Location: Istanbul, Turkey

This project is located next to the Perpa building and connected it with three pathways.The design school will work together with repurposed innovation center. Creating transparent common spaces between producers and users is the first aim of the design. People can also join to workshops and seminars and be a part of the process. Design school and innovation center are feeding each other and creating a transparent continuous flow of data. For the exhibitions, there is also a design park where is used for open-air exhibitions. With this park, public can meet the final products and interact with them.

EMPTY SKYSCRAPER School: ITU | Fall 2014 Instructor: Prof. Cigdem Eren Location: Istanbul, Turkey

Empty Skyscraper is located in Levent, where the most high-rise buildings are in Istanbul. This area is in the middle of residential area, the office and mixed-used buildings. In front of the site, the most crowded road is passing through all along the street.However back side of the site belongs to old residential area. Regarding to those differences of surrounding areas, this skyscraper designed based on time as a program. From residential to cultural center, all parts have different time spending periods and the skyscraper working as a transformer between two seperate neighborhoods..

POST DISASTER School: ITU | Fall 2014 Instructor: Prof. Emrah Acar Location: Istanbul, Turkey

Galata Bridge had constructed by M.A.N company in 1912. Regarding to our construction project about post-disaster scenarios, I prefer to work on existing construction with repurposing it. Women and children are the most affected group after a disaster. I took into consideration of their needs and the existing situation of bridge to create a proper. The reasons of selecting the bridge as a post disaster center are the connectivity role, transportation convenience of the water, central location and the rehabilitation role of the water.

HANDI-CRAFT ATELIERS School: ITU | Fall 2013 Instructor: Prof. Ipek AkpÄąnar Location: Istanbul, Turkey

This project is located in KarakĂśy, the area with many ateliers and urban voids. There are many old buildings which ones are near to collapse. In this project, with using the potential of the Kursunlu Inn, filling the urban voids was the first phase. Using the existing workshop areas in the inn and creating new ones, adding offices, exhibition halls and a concert hall are in the second phase. After these inputs, the complex became an organism that interpenetrate all the urban voids where the inn became the center of all programs.

Here is an open stage for street performances and musicians right next to the Galata Tower. With the usage of existing elevation differences on the site, this design provides two entries of different levels. The cover shell is designed to express the sound waves and indicates the open stage. Inside the building, apart from the concert area, there are also a huge electronic music archieve and exhibition area which are open for public use.

Galata Bridge is the oldest bridge on Halic and it was just using for special events. Regarding to it is cultural importance and the public value, this project created a canoe and rowling club with using the existing potential of different races in that area.

School: CCNY | Summer 2017 Instructor: Prof. Lydia Xynogala Location: -

This material research provides some informations about different blends material behaviours and their physical appearences. Concrete and Latex are two opposite materials as their stiffness and with mixing them regular and irregular methods, the main aim is finding a non-cracking, elastic concrete. The regular blend of %50 concrete + %50 latex approaches the best result.
