Urban Interface & Design Explorations in Ayvalık
Under the title of ‘urban interface’, the main aim of the Urban Design Studio in 2013-2014 Fall Semester was to define new interrelations between form and functions by design. Defining interfaces in urban context did actually bring out a series of design issues such as timelessness, privacy and publicness, space and place, linearity and nodality. Layers of urban form creating interfaces, generative morphology of urban interface, typologies of urban interface and their formation, gradual nature of experiencing urban interface and its sensation were the major issues came to foreground in the collective studio process. Ayvalık, in this context provided a rich basis in which various forms of interfaces was examined and redesigned.
