You are required to design a culture center for a specific purpose that you will identify.

 

You should configure 2 different blocks; A (8m x 8m) and B (6m x 10m), with varying heights (4.5m and 7m). Your culture center plan should be configured by the 2 different blocks with varying heights and should be around 500 m2 with mezzanine floor and atrium void.  The configuration should be selected from Table.1 and planned through the analysis of your town’s urbanisation plan, topographical, cultural, social, and climate characteristics. 

 

STEP BY STEP WHAT TO DO?

In order to be able to design your culture center, you are expected to;

 

-Choose your town from the town list.

 

-Analyse climate and topographic characteristics of the town and region (specify at least 3 specific climate data).

 

-Analyse the urbanisation plan, in addition to the cultural and social aspects related with to your chosen town that are valuable for your design scenario.

 

-Create a design scenario for your culture center about;

-Purpose in the town and location

-User profile,

- User density,

-Usage times and frequency of the space,

- Functions in the space.

 

-Prepare bubble diagrams, architectural program, and allocations.

Your design decisions should depend on your analysis of topographic and climate characteristics, cultural and social aspects, town urbanisation plan and scenario.

 

WHICH SPACES TO INCLUDE IN YOUR CULTURE CENTER?

Your culture center may include the following units:

  • Entrance and welcome area
  • Exhibition areas (temporary, permanent)
  • Library, video/audio rooms
  • Social spaces (café, lounge, hobby rooms…)
  • Shop or market, workshop areas
  • Wet areas (Kitchen or kitchenette, WCs, handicapped WC)
  • Staff units and offices
  • Service units and storage

+ Immediate surrounding of culture center and approach to building

 

HOW TO PRESENT YOUR WORK?

  1. You should first analyse the urbanisation plan of your town, in addition to the cultural and social aspects and then choose one of the layout types from Table 1.

  2. You should design your aprox. 500 m2 culture center building by studying your configuration and deciding on the plan layout, structural system and materials.

  3. You should study the dimensions, functions, usage, and spatial relationships of the specific spaces with circulation elements and with atrium void in your culture center by bubble diagrams, architectural program and allocation studies.

  4. You should study on enclosed, semi-enclosed and open spaces in your culture center as well as the façade openings and roof structure, integrating your climate data and show your decision in your façade elevation and exterior perspective drawings.

  5. You should show your final design decisions by plan, section and interior perspective drawings.
