VERTICAL CAMPUS: IZMIR SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

LINKED TOWERS

İzmir is a place which has some strong lines that defines city texture. Project area is located at the end of "Kordon" that is a space between Aegean Sea and İzmir. Kordon is one of these lines of the city. Building texture is formed along this Kordon line. Also, there are other city lines looking like as parallels of Kordon in city texture. Project area is nearly at the end of Kordon line and site touches parallel line just behind Kordon. Therefore, this line divides the site into 2 pieces. Moreover, project area has two historical buildings which are protected for campus project and there is a path between these two buildings. Other line that divides area is formed according to that path. As a result, project area is divided into 4 pieces. Two pieces of the site is chosen to build Vertical Campus. Campus is designed as 2 separate buildings. Lower one is located near to shore line whose buildings continues along whole Kordon line in order to keep continuous building texture. Higher one is placed in cross direction of lower one.
