Born in the historic city Istanbul, I developed a keen interest for architectural designs and buildings constructed by many civilazations on this seven-hill city. As I wandered around Istanbul, I got fascinated with old and yet innovative designs. My attention was diverted to classic work until I went to Chicago and saw the skyscrapers. After seeing both of the cities, I decided to synthesize old and modern architectural designs and integrate them into my style and creativity.

SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY MUSEUM, HELSINKI

HELSINKI SOUTH HARBOR The mission of the science museum is to promote scientific discovery, in a space that values learning, companionship and social interaction. It intends to accomplish its mission by unveiling the processes by means of which science and technology are constituted and contributing towards the comprehension of its impacts on everyday life, as well as on the biological and social environment at large. In general terms,the museum aspires to showcase and promote the most recent scientific trends and aims to become a center of excellence, recognized throughout the world. The museum’s main focus is on educating students and school children but curators also try to address adults and those who are no longer within the formal education system. The museum’s exhibitions are centered around integrative themes, encouraging discussion of issues related to technology, social topics, the environment and the ethical impacts of scientific development. Visitors are encouraged to actively take part in hands-on exhibitions and experiments.

SPRINGFIELD LIBRARY, OREGON

SPRINGIELD LIBRARY, OREGON Civic libraries are vital social and cultural institutions that provide communities with universial access to information and ideas - a fundamental public service that better enables us to be informed, engaged and productive members of society. At no time in the past has the role of public libraries been more important than today, with dramatic increases in the amount and complexity of information available, and new forms of media and mass communication drastically impacting contemporary life.

This design explores the potential of the contemporary civic library to create a meaningful architectural expression - one that represents holistically the values, aspirations and needs of the community it serves. Related design themes include: community use and civic associations; library identity and sense of place; diversification of library activities; flexibility and adaptability for multiuse; integration of new information technologies; and qualitative enhancement of the library environment.

Concepts: - Make the building “Transparent and Open�

- Using differerent shapes for the building to control the type and quantity of light reaching interior spaces

UP

- Receives good natural light through skylights and clerestory windows d

- Simplicity: Clear flow through spaces shows the simplicity of the design

- Not Separateness;Responding to Context: The building melt into its surroundings, connects with its surroundings. It is distinguishable from its surroundings without giving up its character

- Metal Roof: the slick surface washes off quickly and easily and a diversion of the first water that runs off is minimized 1ST FLOOR PLAN

A HOME FOR OUR TIME Historically, architects have frequently used the design of houses as a way to explore and exemplify the principles behind their work especially if what they are proposing is meant to depart from the way things are currently being done. This project focuses on the same idea. The goal of the project is to introduce a new architectural vision to the landscape of Eugene with the ultimate aim being to spur on the use of new concepts and designs within the city itself.

Garden First, Shaped by the House Principles of “Site Repair” (don’t build on the most beautiful part of the land), and the idea of making the gardens first, informs the shape and character of the house. The site is large enough for three houses with the goal that each design are placed on the land,in different combinations with other designs, in sucha way that they still make a beautiful whole.

Concepts: -By not building on the best part of the land, and the idea of making the garden first, will inform the shape and character of the house.

- Public garden spaces are important in a way that will connect the other houses together and create a wholeness in between designs

UP

-Having both private and public garden spaces in design

- Being more private on the east side and more public on the west side that will create shared outdoor spaces with other two - Come up with a design that would make a beautiful wholeness neighbours with other designs

- Positive spaces and good shapes

- Connection between levels

DESIGNING AN ORPHANAGE, GUADALAJARA MEXICO Guadalajara is the second largest city in Mexico, with a population of more than four million people, and a great number of challenges for it’s inhabitants, among them, a large number of neglected and abondoned children.

The MAIN IDEA behind this project consist of providing shelter and education to an all male population, some of them in their early teens, and to help them with the social and technical skills needed in order for them to be able to go find work, continue their education, or both.

PUBLIC PARKING

Concepts: - Buildings that express its construction systems - The exterior materials suggest the concrete, steel construction in Mexico - Use light colors to merge with concrete and steel structure

- Local Symmetry: The oreganization of site has a diagonal symmetry that brings people up to the core of the site - Public/ Privare Spaces: Public spaces have a larger floor to ceiling height and private spaces drop the ceiling for a more intimate feeling

ADMINISTRATION

A building should be able to open up and say, ‘ I am alive and looking after my people,’ or instead, ‘I’m closed now, and I’m looking after my people as well.’ This to me is the real big issue: buildings should respond. ...They should open and close and modify and re-modify .....That is a part of architecture for me, the resolution of levels of light that we desire, the resolution of the wind that we wish for, the modification of the climate as we want it. All this makes a building live.”

Key ZERO ENERGY BUILDING Strategies The building maximizes passive design strategies to significant reduce energy requirements. The building is narrow for balanced natural daylight and cross ventilation. Light colored walls reflect daylight into the spaces. Exposed concrete floors and ground face CMU walls with insulation provide ample thermal mass to take advantage of Utah’s high diurnal temperature swings. Glazing and exterior walls are shaded with overhangs and sand to limit solar gain. These combined strategies resulted in a building that is comfortable in hot
