Here is the abstract of my last publication in International Journal of Architectural Computing. It was a long study of Parquet Deformation for me, partially archived in this blog; Parquet Deformation is an architectural studio exercise introduced by William Huff in 1960s. It aims to improve students’ reasoning of spatiotemporal variation by utilizing sequential shapeshifting of patterns. This article examines the outcomes of this educational research from a perspective of design computing with a purpose to remark its pedagogical significance. A multilayered reading about the exercise will reveal its historical, theoretical, and artistic backgrounds. Then […]

This year’s Computation-based Basic Design Studio finals were very successful. Below are some of our student’s design works, lanterns that light the campus area at İstanbul Bilgi University. It was a great experience for them to seek for a design system in between the domains of material computation and architectural geometry. 28 first-year students of architecture, interior design and industrial design completed their projects in groups of 4. Students: Aleyna Demirkök, Aleyna Yıldız, Ali Hayder Ali Al Obaidi, Ara Yerlikaya, Aybike Sarıgül, Ayşe Betül Yaman, Beshr Jemieh, Bilgin Eren Yıldırım, Cansu Salcı, […]
