LIVING ENVIRONMENT for 012
In our study we use "Living environment for 012" to resemble the room that is being used beginning from the 3rd month until the end of age 12. Typically, that is the room for the babies, toddlers, children and juvenile. Not even every age, especially in the beginning every month returns you a new problem with new needs, new expectations and dramatically changed new dimensions.  This makes the subject a very interesting problem in terms of its dynamic content. There is much to be told but that is what we believe to put forward with the projects of this semester with your participation and collaboration. We all wish a you a successful and happy semester.

Week 1
11.02.2014
 
The course will be held in a different format this semester. In this format, students choose the person who will instruct her/him in the semester. For this purpose, all the students present their design idea regarding the living environment for 012. As usual, this is a presentation. For this presentation only, no format is imposed to the student. (all kinds of visual media, drawings and free hand sketches are acceptable). As much as your idea and your presentation impress and convince jury members, your chance to be chosen as a member of their design group will be increased. Keep studying hard!! May be two or more jury member may invite you to come to their group at the same time. That time you will be able to choose the instructor whom you want to work with. In the semester, it is your duty to keep all your drawings.
Lecture and Discussion
Modular design philosophy and modular systems. Concept and design language in modular systems. Dynamics of the living environments for 012. Reading and defragmenting design into modules.
PRESENTATION
A presentation  on existing modular systems in living environments for 012 will be made.
BE PREPARED !!!
Think on your design idea and presention.
Week 2
18.02.2014
JURY : Present your design idea..
Today students will present their design idea. For this presentation only, no format is imposed to the student. (all kinds of visual media, drawings and free hand sketches are acceptable). Do your best to choose not to be chosen by jury members. At the end of the day, all the students will find their groups and their instructors that they would work throughout the semester.
BE PREPARED !!!
Next week your design idea should be more concrete. You should clearly define and ready to draw your system. Decompose your design into modules. Make 1/10 models of these modules before coming to class next week. 
Week 3
25.02.2014
Discussion
Your design idea has matured a bit. Still, you have chance to express and discuss your design. In small groups including your instructor you will discuss your project. Catch new points and fresh insights in this discussion. Add to your project, before drawing your system.
Sketch Problem
Sketch drawings of your idea and conceptual approach.
BE PREPARED !!!
On your drawings, your instructor will identify points which details will be drawn. Make research on these details and materials.
Week 4
04.03.2014
Lecture and Discussion
Material selection. Material and joint details. In your groups, your own details will be discussed.
Sketch Problem 1
Sketch drawings of your idea and conceptual approach.
BE PREPARED !!!
Next week you have jury!!!
Week 5 -6
11-18.03.2014
Pre-Jury 1
Draw your system and conceptual approach in 1/20 scale. Especially, alternative combination patterns of your system will be questioned. We would be eagering to see how your system transforms to facilitate different functions. And how the spaces in between your modular system units house different activities such as being used as a playground.   Also, rendered perspectives and detailed models (assembled with proper media to represent real materials and color) of your system and impressiveness of your presentation will be evaluated.  
Week 7
25.03.2014
SLEEPING UNIT
Discussion
Your performance in pre-jury will be discussed and the critics that have been made to your project will be considered in groups. Sleeping activity will be analyzed and discussed in further detail. Remember especially for the babies and toddlers sleeping is mostly an accompanied activity.
Sketch Problem 2
Ortographic drawings of your sleeping unit in 1/10 scale. Your drawings should demonstrate  how your sleeping unit decomposes into modules.
BE PREPARED !!!
Your instructors will identify points on your ortographic drawings and ask for details. This is the second time that you will work on detail drawings. Naturally, much is expected. Also, you will not find another time this semester to work on detail drawings in the class with professional guidance of your instructor. So, come to class prepared.
Week 8
01.04.2014
Discussion

Sketch Problem 3
Detail drawings of your sleeping unit in 1/5, 1/2 or 1/1 scale which appropriates.
BE PREPARED !!!
Bring your color marquers and pencils to render your 3D drawings.
Week 9
