TEDU|MAUS Atelier No.01

This saturday, the Masters program of Architecture and Urban Studies (MAUS) in TEDU held a first of an atelier series named “Gelecek Ulus, Eski Kent’ten Yenişehir’e”. This atelier studies began with a walk in Ulus in the morning. The program consisted of three guided routes based on different outputs and guided by different instructors. I joined the walk lead by Prof. Dr. Ali Cengizkan, “Value of the Architectural Product“. We have mainly discussed different types of architectural value and why and how an architectural product can possess “value”. By looking at architectural products that make up the values of early republic times, we have observed the application of time and discussed the modern day applications on these products. We have observed the ways in which the product becomes either a historical value, the value of the old, a modern value, the value of the new, the value of the user and everything in-between. Sometimes through structures that have all or could have had all these values if there had been a different process of conservation or interpretation, and sometimes through structures that are perhaps considered to have none of these values. While also discussing how these values can be defined very differently and variously depending on the person defining it, too.

In the meantime, our instructors shared with us different types of reading architectural products with a different perspective than just stating the period and archetypes as an art historian would. Check out the photos I took during the walk and follow the rest of the story below!

After the walk, we have returned to the studio to form a group of 4 to produce a poster in a few hours as the output of the day. We are then asked to submit a personal digital poster as the end-result which will finalize the study. Stay tuned for the poster I will submit as the final result!
