VERTICAL CAMPUS: IZMIR SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

VERTICAL CANVAS

The concept is to create a vertical campus which celebrates the artwork of the students studying inside it. The Building is to serve as a platform for the students to showcase their talent as well as contribute to the visual community of Izmir. It will serve as a cultural center which is open to the public. The building includes a central core circulation which will be facing the City of Izmir and be the largest canvas and the wow factor of the university. The other departments will all have smaller sub canvasses which will be linked to the central core and will face the sea creating the attraction canvas on the other side of the building. And the final connection will be through the public spaces such as museums and art exhibits, ranging in mediums from performance arts to theatre to paintings, which have their own typology defined by their form so as to provide the public with a visual identifier for their place in the building. The artwork will be displaces through special material called "onlyglass mediafacade".
