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, […]

This Rhino Python script generates the dual of the selected solid object. However it has some bugs and is not working in some cases. This task could be much better solved with meshes because the main problem is to identify the neighbourhoods of faces. Works pretty well with simple objects like boxes. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 # Generating Dual of Selected Polyhedron # 03.08.2017 www.designcoding.net – Tugrul […]

This year’s lanterns assignment was amazing. With very limited time and experience, Basic Design students created stunning compositions of polyhedra and unrolled complex surfaces. There are also some deviations of original lamp designs . Here are some of them:

Below is one of the fourteen final projects of freshman year Basic Design studio in İstanbul Bilgi University Faculty of Architecture. The component, made of folded aluminium sheets. Students insist that this is the most optimal solution to the problem of polyhedra in a component-based structure. They experimented with this shape a lot and tried their best to make one that has similar triangular faces on different sides, so the component would drive the macroform in diverse directions. Prototypes, trying to figure out the connection of multiple components to span […]
