ARCH 306 CREATIVE MAPPING IN ARCHITECTURE (2-2) 3
Understanding and expression of complex urban environments using the techniques of creative mapping in architecture. Theoretical discussions will involve introduction of contemporary creative mapping techniques used in architecture, and discussion on examples from art and architecture. Studio work will involve elaboration of each student’s mapping technique to present and evaluate the ‘lived space’ observed and achieved through research.
ARCH 338 MUSEUM ARCHITECTURE (3-0) 3
This course aims to explore the concept, content and architecture of museums. This is aimed to be achieved, on the one hand, through the discussions on several themes such as history and function of museums; the role they have been playing as cultural institutions; as well as contemporary approaches to museum architecture.
ARCH 350 AESTHETICS OF PLACE (3-0) 3
ARCH 355 EARTHQUAKE ARCHITECTURE (3-0) 3
This course explores the principles of earthquake resistant architectural design. Definition of the earthquake phenomenon, seismic characteristics of Turkey are among the topics covered during the semester. Main focus will be on the material and mechanical properties of reinforced concrete and seismic performance of reinforced concrete structures from an architectural point of view. Common seismic design mistakes made by designers will be explored and methods of avoiding them will be studied. The course will finalize with a series of computer generated parametric models which will help the students visualize the effects of their design decisions in simulated real-life conditions.
