2020-2021 SPRING SEMESTER LANDSCAPE DESIGN COURSES


Landscape Design II
will be led by Prof. Dr. Hayriye Eşbah Tunçay and will be assisted by Res. Assist. Nebahat Kalkan in spring 2021.

Landscape Design II studio focuses on sustainable urban drainage systems.  The objective is to explore rainwater harvesting design across scopes and scales from cisterns to more immense opportunities at the metropolitan scale. The semester is structured around four iterative stages of tasks:  1- metabolic flows and material processes, 2- encoding of the urban fabric regarding water urbanism, 3-  complexity and compromise, 4- formation of a water sensitive city.  The studio pursues a design laboratory format comprising workshops, lectures, readings, discussions, and presentations.
