Basic Design at Bilkent University is conducted collaboratively by the Departments of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture and Interior Architecture and Environmental Design. The objective of the course is to introduce students to the complex lexicon of spatial design dynamics, tools and methods by going through experimental spatial design processes. The semester starts with a series of workshops on spatial Dynamics: anthropometry, structure, topography, light and shadow, and sound. The second Module is where the students start practicing spatial design.

In 2021 Spring Semester, students’ task was to design a "place" for the Design and Architecture Society (DAS) of Bilkent University, on the extended area in front of the 76th Dorm. Starting with studies on content, context and concept, and pursuing with work on production of spaces.
