Two Rooms of Their Own
Basic Design 2 at Bilkent University is conducted collaboratively by the Departments of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture and Interior Architecture and Environmental Design. FA 102 Basic Design 2 continues to establish fundamentals of design and design thinking that was introduced in FA101. The students work on multiple design problems with a particular emphasis on spatial design. In Spring 2022, for the final project of the semester, the freshman year students worked on “Two Rooms of Their Own. The design problem was formulated around a scenario where the university decides to provide spaces for temporary residency to successful students. The residency spaces were envisioned as both minimal accommodation units and spaces for creative production and exhibition. The students were asked to design in two different locations within the campus. Doubling the design problem by introducing two sites for the same problem enabled discussions on contextual interpretation and design language.
