Variation-III (Final model )


In my new model(variation-III), I created a new variation of Variation-II. For the juxtaposed part, I want to tell how I have achieved them. I decided to separate parts which has different characteristic qualities. Therefore, I used planar elements and made up linear and planar parts. Group seen like linear was stretched more, and planar group was made bigger to feel more planar. With this way I divided two parts. Its main purpose is to remark juxtapositional area between them and in the middle of the model I used linear and planar elements together and acquired juxtapositional volume in there. I used a lot of linear andplanar elements together and revealed different juxtapositional volume.  On the other hand, we were given an opportunities to make mass, so I thought to use massive area in the juxtapositional area to remark it more and  I decided to use mass just on the linear elements. In this new model, we were given a new material(transparency) to used on it, but it is not using an element. My professor said that you should use the new material as a language of your model. I decided to use transparency material to divide some volumes. For instance, A planar element divides two different volume in the model and I used transparency instead of the planar element with this way, I acquired three different juxtapositional volume also strong volume.

A Break With The Theme

kjWe were expected to make a conceptual model and we were given 2 words for us and we searched and analysed it in terms of differet aspects. My words are juxtaposition and amplified, but i just chose JUXTAPOSITION to apply in my new model. Juxtaposition is the act of placing two entities in close proximity to each other. the use of the word juxtaposition is used to describe a sharp contrast between two things. By placing two positions, each with their own identity in close proximity to each other, their defining characteristics and differences stand out. Previously, i made a small model to define Juxtaposition. I used linear element and curve together and created new thing.



In the model we are expected to make up a model which include both of Variation-I and Structural frame. My model composes 3 main parts. These are Planar part, Linear part and merging part. In the planar area i streched to emphasis to this part. (the biggest part). Linear part have relation each other in terms of proportion and measurement. Also in the merging area, i changed direction of rotation to acquire stronger relation between linear and planar elements. I decided to seperate 3 parts to emphasis and remark each one part and with this wat i can show relation with each other easily.



Structural Frame (Stage-2)

In stage-1, we made and observed structural analysis of a manufacturing counter and the particular steps within the course of production. However, in this stage, we were expected to produce a structural frame using linear elements like wooden stick. We just used wooden stick which is 42 mm in lenght and  multiples of 42mm also rotation has to only 90 degrees. When we produce this model, we gave importance some important qualities such as rhythm, variation, differentiaton, repetition …etc. While making this,strong observation and abstraction are the main qualities. That is my initial model and after discussed on it, i learned my mistakes such as i must be careful while applying the branching operation like that. At the beginning, this assignment looks very easy, but when you start  to make it becomes so complex.


Structural Frame – Stage 1 : Manufacturing Process


This week our main topic was RHYTHM and we watched some videos that are based on rhythm in the poetry and we analysed the structural principles of poetry work. we were given assignment which has two stages. In the first stage, we were expected to observe and make structural analysis of a small scale manufacturing counter and the particular steps within the course of production.

Therefore, i chose a handcraft  called computation handcraft. I  took photos and video, analysed and observed its every step while making.Then, i prepared a flow chart that presents the sequential stages of the production process. It is made up of some elements .It is made with symmetrical order by the help of grid. When looking 15. and 16. steps, these have rhythm due to the fact that the work of stitch has regulating movement. Using different colors of rope creates differentiation and variation. Moreover,  in the 8. and 10. steps have rhythmical movement because of the fact that it is made two times regularly. One time tighten it and then strain the cloth and tighten again…

Architectural Tour of Ankara

Yesterday, we went on an architectural tour of Ankara starting from Kızılay and ending at Ulus for observing different structures(business bank, sumer bank,ulus office building,ottoman bank..etc.) which were made by famous architects. These have different structures from each other. After establihed the Turkey republic, affected from architecture of Ottoman, but after some time it was abandoned this style and they decided to develop modern architecture so some famous architects were invited to Turkey and with this event modern architecture started and neoclassic architecture lost its importance. In those terms, abandoned from ornamental and exaggerated style and people created more abstraction structure. Aim is that create aesthetics.

I want to show some photograph from our trip…

When looking at this building what we see is that used different materials which include brass,copper,marble and stone, all of them created their own composition and textural effects for the structure.


The Municipalities Bank- Seyfi Arkan

The other architectural structure is Ulus Office Building. I observed and sketcked this important structure. This place was built by G.Beken, O. Bolak and O. Bozkurt.These architects won architecture project competition and made it.

I took this photo different aspect from the ulus office building and sketcked it to observe details.
