comparison: architecture, landscape
The relationship of the buildings with the ground and their surroundings constitutes an important interface based on “landscape, architecture and urbanization” that should be handled with an interdisciplinary approach and should support each other conceptually. This area describes the relationship between landscape – architecture – city.
An integrated work with the landscape provides a direct contribution to the spatial spirit created in addition to the other technical requirements of the architectural project. Landscape is a direct part and complement to architectural design. When appropriate, it filters the negative effects of the sun in summer, when necessary, it takes the light into the space in winter with deciduous plants or undertakes a task that reinforces the continuity of architectural design with harsh landscape interventions. Materials have meanings beyond their physical existence. Water, light and shadow games emphasize the lightness and dynamism, when appropriate, the integrity and trust. Landscape is one of the important complements that give expression to architecture.
architecture that integrates with the landscape
In projects such as residences and hotels, this relationship becomes even more important for the project. Architectural design includes not only a closed spatial experience, but also a semi-open and open spatial experience. The combination of indoor and outdoor uses enriches this spatial experience. Landscape; a multi-layered field that shrouds, masks, relaxes, relaxes, reflects, reproduces or puts itself in focus like a sculpture during the design process. Landscape in my projects; is always an integral part of my project process. We make the general decisions in the project concept design and develop together with our landscape group in the process.
The relationship that architecture establishes with “place” is one of the important interfaces of the search for “holiness”. While the act of building destroys the earth irreversibly, on the other hand, it carries the use of the earth to another dimension with the produced. It aims to give back again and again in different ways what it borrowed from the “place”… Architecture differs from other branches of art in terms of the relationship and organization it establishes with the material. It is the art of adding something to the soil.
projects: similarities, differences
In many of my projects, landscape decisions are in the integral continuity of the design process. It can be seen that the conceptual background of architectural design is supported by different expressions with landscape approaches in Bahriye Üçok Kindergarten, Folkart Hills, Mi’Costa, Buyaka Shopping Mall and office projects, which are among the projects we have realized recently.
While setting out with the sustainability criteria in the kindergarten project, a playful and entertaining language was used, in which the use of landscape and green is integrated with the architecture in the dense and high urban texture, and the scale is considered at the child perception dimension. Folkart Hills, where the architecture produces its own topography, assumes an important function with the effect of the use of green and landscape, which is also based on sustainability criteria, on the management of the intensive housing program. While Mi’Costa includes concepts such as the idea of green gardens on different floors, indoor and semi-open space continuity and easing the structural expression, it is possible to see the separating, collecting and integrating roles of the landscape in complex programs such as Buyaka.
