This semester, I’m taking a course which specifies on contemporary architectural approaches and we as a group presented “Diagram Architecture”.

Alice in Kayaköy!

Well what is wrong with this title?! What does Alice do in Kayaköy? 🙂 Of course these are some non-sense sentences but the basic idea here is that it is a combination of Alice in Wonderland and Kayaköy. So does our new assignment. We were asked to merge these two diagram analysis according to some design principles even though the two of them are two different worlds. Intersecting cores of the field with the hierarchically important part of the diagram is my basic design strategies. Of course it will be sooooooo developed… Consequently, we will merge the instance and the field. Better get started!

The Field

The analysis that we had through examining the field of Kayaköy was first put in a diagram. These were subjective interpretations of the field and also the detailed analysis. Then we were given this new assignment which is about stretching lines into a frame according to diagram. We distinguished some important parts according to our interpretations of diagram and called them “cores”. In my design these were the basic areas which can show more information than other parts by overlap, intersection and so forth. Long story short, my diagram has two cores and there two parts also differentiate from each other. One has more fragmented part and the other part is the less fragmented variation of it. So, here is my field!

Then, there is a second step which is about putting “depth quailty” into this 2D frame work. We need to differentiate our fields in order to have a 3D grid on a 3D surface. I personally think that putting emphasis onto intersection parts and core will make them look more legible and reflect their importance.

The Text: Alice In Wonderland

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”
Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

This is the first assignment of the second semester given to us the minute we walk in the studio. Architects don’t waste time! 😀 Actually, this is rather an activity than an assignment because we were asked to read “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Caroll.

After reading the full text of one my my favorite childhood story, we were supposed to draw a diagram according to the some scenes we had chosen. We interpreted the these scenes according to some principles and according to experience of space. Our interptations created a rich context in the diagram and we also discovered new qualities of spaces while forming diagrams.

My diagram has analysed the scenes according to the experience of time and how the interrelations between the characters in the book affect the same experiences.
