A Break in Istanbul

This weekend I had a break. I went to Istanbul and I visit some places that I wonder. My first stop was Nakilbent Cistern in Sultanahmet. There is an exhibition ” Su Ruhu”, Water Spirit which focus on the relation between art and space. It opened on March 27th and it will continue until April 28th. If you have time I suggest you to visit there. It is surprising that there is no exhibition admission fee. Water, that used to be collected in the cistern for centuries, has been introduced to the space again with the form of water particles and you can experience the space with the help of different lights. Here is some photographs from there.

And here is some photos that make feel us in the different levels of water with the help of water particle and light.

My second stop was Sancaklar Mosque desined by Emre Arolat. http://www.archdaily.com/516205/sancaklar-mosque-emre-arolat-architects/ : In this website you can find the design decission of the mosque. I don’t know whether it has a meaning in term of relegion or not I observed that inside of the mosque there are 12 steps and in ceiling there are some forms that resemble izohips and they are also 12 and a part that sect leader preaches a sermon has 6 steps. Here is some photos from the mosque.

An finally, there are some photos from the Istanbul and my journey.


The Instance

the instance 2In this assignment, we produced a ‘instance’ model as a 3 dimensional presentation of our diagrams consisting of all scenes and actions that we chose and analyzed according to spatial experiences from the book. The instance is composed by using folded planes. We cannot use any adhesives or glues for relating different parts with each other.

In my instance model in the light of my diagram dis two different part by creating a zone but in these parts there are some similarities so I did some transition between these parts.

the instance 1And also by considering the proportion of my space I intersect some of them with each other according to their relation that I analyzed. The first difference between these two part is their density and the second difference is interrelation of spaces with each other. In less dense part the interrelation of spaces are also less as shown in my diagram.
