2017-18 Güz | ARCH 160 | Building Materials and Components I | Öğr. Gör. Vassilis ALYMARAS

At this first project of Arch_160 course we have tried to define the elements and components of a building (doors/windows, staircases, horizontal and vertical levels, flooring and ceiling, walls etc) not strictly as constructive elements but rather as forms that correspond to the basic characteristics of a primordial spatiality  such as: inside-outside, up-down, left-right, limits and borders, transitions, thresholds and passages, concave-convex, transparency-compactness.   Our purpose was to help the students understand how much important is to develop their own architectural vocabulary and configure  genuine spatial qualities and forms.  Some very rough, genuine and colorful concrete models, made by the students in the hangar of the School, is the result of   Project #1.
