2017 Spring Festival Design Charrette

Inhabiting the Limit

May 8th-12th 2017, 9.00-16.00, Faculty of Architecture Design and Fine Arts, ADA102, ADA 305

The notion of limit in architecture implies that of spatial enclosure. Spatial enclosure causes limitation in perception, thus the perception of the enclosure is generally limited in un-trained designers. The workshop will explore with lectures the notion of limit in architecture, encouraging students to apply the findings to their ongoing design projects. Students will be working on their studio assignment within a different perspective, that of the notion of limit. The workshop consists of a series of lectures, and a 4 days charrette. Students will be producing an A3 colour drawing.  Participants will receive a certificate of attendance. There will be an exhibition of the final works. Participation is open to students of Architecture and Interior Architecture.

«Ars Simia Naturae»

Friday 21/10/16, 11.00-13.00
Millennium Senate Congress Hall
Girne American University

Presentations:
Prof. Dr. Kutsal Öztürk
Rector, Girne American University

Interior boat design

The text quoted in the seminar’s title «Ars simia naturae» derives from Giovanni Boccaccio,Genealogia deorum gentilium, published in 1360, and it literaly means «Art monkey nature». It represents here not only a reference to a specific historical period, the ‘300, but also the use of models in art and design. How could we apply the “models” to the design of interior spaces? Is there any interesting relationship between meaning and models? Which is the importance of history in teaching design? Which is the most effective teaching philosophy for design? These are some of the questions that the lectures will raise proposing them to the entire Faculty of Architecture, Design & Fine Arts of Girne American University.
