GAZI UNIVERSITY LABORATORIES
The project is designed to complement the needs of Faculty of Science of Gazi University by providing additional classrooms, seminar halls, auditoriums and variety of laboratories. It situates within the Gazi University campus in Ankara, Turkey.
As the main organizational principle, the project restructures the given program into two subprograms as labs - hands-on activities - and lecture halls. The differentiation in the program reflects on the differentiation in the mass. A central glass axis, which basically works as the main entrance and circulation - social area , becomes the main organizer distinguishing and unifying the two subprograms at the same time. Service areas are gathered together at the back with a linear circulation hall, constituting an overall rational scheme.
The variety of labs and lecture halls are sized according to their needs and organized in a way that relevant spaces come together.
The image of huge, underlit, isolated laboratories is aimed to be replaced with spacious, sunlit spaces which are in direct relationship with inside and outside. The idea of bringing nature, green and sunlight into the workspaces is achieved by the use of semi-open greenhouses that come between the masses. Thus, the building is also envisaged to work beyond its main function and host social activities as well.
