The Site Plan

The idea is the transformation of the site to a focal space which works as a linker between İsmet İnönü Street and 732. Street. That’s why existing registered warehouse structure remains same and only East side of the structure stripping only structural elements shows itself. Actually, the purpose is a creating a new passage from site to Ambarlar Street and at the same time shows the structural wood elements which are the main reasons for being registered structure. Also, the primary and very early decision is creating two streets between three solid. So, it is the reference to open large space relations between İsmet İnönü and 732. Street.  The recycling program has located under those workshops and professional programs and located in -5.00. But the access to recycling and workshops is very primary and not well designed. Also, there was a discussion about the necessary equipment and space for the recycling factory. That’s why I need to explain and represent the machine which minimizes the process of recycling process of the glass.

The Old Industry District Solid-Void Relations

Firstly, the district is surrounded by brick and tile factories such as Kılıçoğlu Brick Factory, Çift Kurt Factory, Kurt Factory, Doğan Factory and Kartal Factory. That’s why the specific property can be the color of the soil which is related to brick’s source. The site is located near to Kılıçoğlu Brick Factory which is linked 732 street. Çift Kurt Factory has located the north direction of the site. However, the factory demolished very recently for the purpose of damage by weight of snow. Also, Kurt Factory is demolished and built Es-Park which is functioning as a shopping center.

The relation between site and factories

So, I started to take sections belong to İsmet İnönü Street which is the main street to downtown. The purpose was trying to understand the relation between İsmet İnönü Street and 732. Street. That’s why as a technique I took series of sections. The sequences of sections show that İsmet İnönü Street is not representing or showing the properties of Old Industry District.  On the other hand, the 732. street is the street which contains all the information and sense about the Old Industry District because by walking on the 732. street people can see the color of soil and factories such as Doğan Factory and Kılıçoğlu Factory which are the primary concern for me in terms of the idea of Old Industry District.


The Sequences of Sections

Also, there are large open spaces which represented a green color on the map. Those open large spaces are left as green spaces in the master plan. There are extremely important for me because those large open spaces are the linkers because there are the necessary voids to join 732. street. So, the all-purpose is feeling of Old Industry District for that I want to replace the human flow from İsmet İnönü Street to 732. Street.


The System of Network

Finally, my proposal is all about using the properties of 732. street and for that, the site will function as a focal space which links the İsmet İnönü Street and 732. Street like those large open spaces.


In terms of the program, the idea is creating a new unit which represents the brick and tile unit and their insulation techniques. Actually, the recycle of a glass is the second option for me because it has too much mechanical equipment for this issue as well. For this purpose, I had searched about recycling process of the glass and there is a new technology machine which works as automatic and produces the particular amount of discarded glass so not the scale of a factory. So, the site will function as a focal space and at the same time will produce recycled glass from discarded glass which is very positive because it will link with the workshops and professional studies as well. However, it is not a sharp decision at the moment because the glass recycling can be replaced with the paper recycling.


The standard process of recycling the glass

The process of recycling the glass: the machine will minimize the necessary space for the particular process such as sorting, beneficiation etc. The process will be collection and processing and be creating a new unit. The unit will be used for the craftsmen, artists and workshop source.







What if 2 - A1

Drive-in movie theater was one of the extraordinary activities in the 1980s. In the proposal, the registered structure’s north facade works as a screen of the theater. That’s why the site considered as a large public space which works in two different levels. At the zero level site works as a drive-in movie theater and -5.00 altitude public space works as an amphitheater. Also, in between 0.00 and -5.00 levels, there are two different surfaces which have a different kind of privacy level. The registered building functioning as a commercial which links with the drive-in movie theater and amphitheater.

Kartal Brick Factory ?


Kartal Brick Factory is located in Old Industry Area in Eskişehir. The factory created by two similar volumes. The main purpose of what if the question is creating a generator in terms of special sense and also to understand the district. The question is what if a science laboratory is injected to Kartal Brick Factory. What ıf 1 - A0

There are two different volumes which different functions. In terms of the program, in the proposal, the additional structure and existing two volumes have different functions such as administration, laboratories, offices and necessary functions. The idea is creating a connecting volume between existing two volumes. The additional volume functions as a storage which linked with the laboratories. Also, the additional volume barely shows itself to respect the industrial heritage. The facades remain and contain the original properties.

The definition of the curtain is a piece of material that hangs down to cover a window, stage. That’s why the screen can be considered as a curtain as well because the definition of the screen is the part of a television or computer that shows images or writing. Actually, it is the same thing with theatre stage or tv screen. So, the smallest screen which we learn almost everything the mobile phone. What if spaces covered with the screen? What if double it’ size, triple it, What if 5000 screen placed with the orientation side by side and back by back? The length of the screen is 78,1 mm and the height is 158,4 mm which our mobile phone. The screen of the mobile phone is something personal, we can do many activities with it such as writing, texting, calling, watching movies etc. Actually, the screen of the mobile phone is an interface which works on the scale of the entire world. Additionally, we can do group activities on the screen of the mobile phone but it is generally a device for the purpose of personal learning. The combination of 64 mobile screens can be considered as a TV screen as well. On the other hand TV screen is a device for group activities, many people can share the same thing on that screen for examples in the cafes, bar etc. The screen is actually a surface so we can cover the wall with the screen, what will be different then? Users still orientate itself with same positions or there are different orientation outside of the space and inside of the space. The human body reacts it very differently because if there is a screen on the roof and want to look at it then you have to lie on the floor. Or the facade of the structure covered by the screens, it can react as a stage as well because in the end screen is just a surface.

The last semester, Salient Design worked on Housing Project and our main concern was the relationship between dwelling and workshop activities. So, as designers wanted to consider them as the same activity which takes place in the same structure. That’s why it was good opportunity to test workshop spaces in terms different activities. Firstly, the furniture in workshop area covered by the screen of a mobile phone by the operation of multiply not re-size. So, it is the same activity with working on a computer on the table, there are no big differences except the position of the human body differences. Finally, if the entire area covered with the screen with multiply operation, it has the different relation with the human body such as there is no certain activity in that space and the user can sit everywhere and any position.

Kılıçoğlu Brick Factory


2000 plan

After the revolution of industry affect entire world in terms of social, culture and architecture as well. As similarly, the hygiene issue was one of the highest problems in the 20th century in industrial cities in smaller scale in houses and in the factories. This term we are working on an industrial heritage which located in the Old Industrial area at Eskişehir/ Turkey. The site is very close to the Kılıçoğlu Brick Factory. The Old Industrial Area had different types of structures and it was an example of production and social life. The architect of the structure was Robert Aebi. In the north side of the factıry, there is Eti Bisküvileri Factory, the west of it Doğan Factory, the south of it Kartal Brick Factory and in southeast side, there is a train station. There are three different structures in Kılıçoğlu’ site. The number one factory and the number two factory has a relation in terms of spatial sense, material, structural technics and mechanical features as well. The most significant symbol of the Kılıçoğlu Brick Factory is located in the number one factory which is in East facade of the structure. The East facade has Neo-Classic features and we can sense Bauhaus as well.

”It could be a grouping of physiognomic types, vernacular buildings, or species of monkeys. A typology is assembled by observation, collection, naming and grouping. These actions allow the members of the class to be compared, usually in search of broader patterns. These patterns may reveal biological constants if the subjects are living
things, or social truths if the subjects are human creations.”  Marc Freidus, 1991
