Taşkale & Meke Maar



          In this assignment, we were asked to study the relations and their variations through planes and lines. Working through physical models and drawings at the same time really helped with the overall design of the constructs. As the first stages of the assignments, we had very specific requirements to fulfill like down to the exact dimensions of the planes and lines. This helped us narrow down the decision-making process in order to start designing efficiently.

         We did not yet attempt a more complex assignment where there are lots of design problems and design parameters to control. Therefore these assignments are very well designed in the core that these basic assignments still hold their significance and challenging problems are still creating learning environments and discussions on how things are done in the studio.

       The main goal of this assignment, in general, was to open new ways of discoveries. Below are the first attempts for the next steps which go to a more complex design problem every time. But because we learn as we go, each assignment kept its difficulty.

        After the critics, we had the chance to revise the models;


Body Postures

      We were asked to study and photograph different body postures where we study the relation between postures and with the picture frame. Light and shadow conditions of the atmosphere were sometimes tools for us to study and emphasize these relations between two forms of bodies
