Özyeğin University Faculty of Architecture and Design Department of Architecture

ÖzÜ FAD Department of Architecture Studio Culture – September 2017

 

 

Introduction:

OzU FAD Department of Architecture Studio Culture Document were created with their opinions on the studio Özyeğin University Faculty of Architecture and Design Dept., Department of Architecture Department, Academic Board of Architecture Department, Students of Architecture Department (Volunteer) Education Working Group members. Studio culture is sent to the stakeholders of the education at the beginning of each semester. The main aim of this study is to apply the " Studio Culture of Özü FAD Department of Architecture " in the design studios which constitute the backbone of the curriculum.

 

Curriculum – Program Outcomes – Learning Outcomes – Course Contents – Course Aims: 

The design studios like many other architectural programs, start with "Tasarım / Design" and continue a series of studios as "Design Studio I-VI / Architectural Design Studio I-VI" and ending with “Mezuniyet Projesi /Capstone Project” each prerequisite to other one. This series is planned with the aim of forming a system that is built on each other and nurturing each other.

Reflecting the requirements of the architect-employer relationshipin all processes of design,

Studio Execution / Operation / Announcement / Interaction / Partnerships / Integration:

1.    

The studios are carried out within the framework of "Özü MTF Architecture Studio Culture" documents.

2.    

The studio has full-time and part-time teaching members / instructors / research assistants assigned by the Department and the Dean's Office.

3.    

The number of students per faculty member (+ research assistant) will be between 15-20

4.    

Studio alternative modes of execution:

a)    

A faculty member / student group,

b)   

Several faculty members / learner groups come together horizontally or vertically to make horizontal or vertical joint studios,

c)    

Multiple faculty members / faculty members x 15-20 student groups (eg 3 faculty members x 15-20 students 45-60 students)

5.    

Announcements about the studios are made on the blog before each semester registration week. Each studio tutor shares information on the tutor / s, subject, location, method, rules, attendance, participation, technical trip etc. in a one page file.

6.    

Students register the sections of studios on the SIS with their own preferences. They can change sections during the add - drop period. If there is a vacancy in the same semester, the quota of the other sections will not increase.

7.    

It is expected that the works done in studios in the same or different semesters will be made to interact with activities such as jury, open jury, exhibition, seminar, colloquium at certain intervals,

8.    

Establishment of partnerships for horizontal and vertical integration of studios is encouraged.

 

Studio Environment:

It is possible to acquire the knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for solving architectural design problems from simple to the most complicated with general design problems by providing studio environments with information resources, technology and equipments.

 

The studio environment is expected to provide the following possibilities:

1.    

Each studio student has a study unit

2.    

Flexible space that allows individual and team work,

3.    

Projector, display, pin-up, model making facilities,

4.    

Infrastructure for material recycling,

5.    

First aid infrastructure,

6.    

Internet access,

7.    

7/24 operation possibility

8.    

The application of the cleanliness rules of each student,

9.    

Compliance with the general cleaning and use rules,

10. 

Use of time: Architectural design education is a type of teaching-learning that requires time and continuity. For this reason, the studio tutors and students should be able to evaluate the studio time in the most efficient way and ensure that the high participation and sharing studio is an active - interactive learning environment.

11. 

The main focus of design education is the studio environment. In addition, non-studio events (technical trips, fieldwork, library research, field research, exhibitions, case studies, resource reviews, student competitions and participation in workshops) should be encouraged.

12. 

Part-time faculty members, invited speakers and jury members working in design and construction practices should be supported to participated in the design studios.

 

Assessment / Transparency / Informing Public / Ethics issues in the Studio: 

1.    

Fair and transparent evaluation,

2.    

An interim evaluation before course withdrawal period and announcement to the students

3.    

Preliminary jury, final jury, class juries and table-top criticism are the key to protecting personalities with mutual respect and goodwill

4.    

Announcement of the student activities to the public through exhibition, publication etc.

5.    

Student and the instructor are required to behave very carefully about plagiarism, overdued help and other similar ethical issues 

6.    

In the case of any work done (exam, jury, sketch exam, pre-submission, interim submission etc.), the studio executives should behave in the same way to the students in the same class and group without discrimination,

 

Studio Culture Review and Revision

1.    

The studio culture document is assessed every three years with the cooperation of the Dean of the Faculty of Architecture and Design, the Department of Architecture, the Academic Board of the Architecture Department, the student study group, alumni and advisory committee. It is revised when it is deemed necessary by the Architecture Department Board.
