VERTICAL CAMPUS: IZMIR SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

PIXELATED CAMPUS

Analysis of the site points the fragmented feature at lower levels while higher levels have more clear geometries. As a contrast of this situation this building is becoming gradually fragmented like foam dissolving into the air. Because ground floor level is considered as a huge interaction volume and interaction spaces are getting smaller and decomposing while rising up. A studio considered as a unit and decomposition of the units create pixilation and it responds to human scale. It allows for the possibility of individualized floor plans consist of collective internal spaces like exhibition halls, library with a panoramic view, a studio with an external terrace, or a double space interaction place which overlooks the sea view.

Rather than creating an introvert and enclosed tower, a complex system which composed of units based on human scale will create much more interactive environment.
