Basic Design at Bilkent University is conducted collaboratively by the Departments of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture and Interior Architecture and Environmental Design. FA 101 Basic Design 1 introduces students to the fundamentals of design and design thinking. The students work on abstract design problems by processing systems and geometrical manipulations.

In Fall 2021, for the final project of the semester, the students worked on The Game, a 3D organization. The project commenced with an exploration and analysis of students’ selected games. Based on this study, the students created their design ideas as well as a design kit. Eventually, each project sets forth a system of organization which is expected to achieve a flow of volumes.
