Through this course, in which concepts of "human" and "nature" will be problematized through their relation with each other, there will be discussions on Ancient Greek, Modernity and Anthropocene period. The problematization of the nature in Ancient Greek, which was possible only when the cities had arisen, will be analyzed in conjunction with the dynamic and non essentialist nature of psukhe and with the apprehension of a dialectical life. Then, the relation between modernity and nature will be discussed in conjunction with the "second nature" and with modernity's glance on nature. In the last part of the theoretical chapter of the course, it will be focused on the history and the arriving point of the relation between nature and human.The source of the critique of traditional creation narratives which is developed under the influence of modernity; the progress of the geological view; and the evolution theory will also be examined. Within this framework, the evolution of the plants, animals and human will be studied and some workshops will be organized under the title of "Homo sapiens" and "social ecology".

This course aims to reveal the vital connection between beliefs and their respective geographies. During the course, rather than describing the rules and structures of the monotheistic religions, the background and the historical continuity of these religions will be discussed. Also, the periods of cultural change, which both affects and being affected by the history, politics and religion, will be examined. The village in which the course will be taken also serves as the medium of our research. This allows us to demonstrate the undeniable effect of the “space” on the connection between the politics, culture and religion. Discussing how some concepts like “past”, “memory”, “script”, “spoken word”, “knowledge”, “remembering” are being considered as components of history and finding out how these concepts are mostly evaluated in a political structure rather than a philosophical or historical approach are the main aims of this course.

This course aims not to discover the historical record of oral and written cultures, but to keep informed of the debates in this field and to comprehend better the theories of oral and written cultures through a small field work. The evaluation of the concept of "past" -which occupies a huge place in social sciences- and the question of whether the past is only a timewise continuity; or a construction which is built by placing different times over and over or side by side, will be the main discussions through the course. Moreover, the question of how and on what regards could these texts have been written, which reveals the conventions of the history as a discipline, will be discussed under the light of present readings. For this reason, the problematic of under which circumstances the "narrator", which is the essential element of written and oral culture, turns into a figure of history, will be conveyed through the theoretical knowledge provided by the course readings. Additively, through a field work which will be held in Ida Mountains, these theoretical discussions will be supported by the practical experiences.

When we say globalisation, we surely mean different things. For some, it means new opportunities and ever accelerated rates of cultural exchange. For others, the word is simply a replacement for colonialism or imperialism. Some see it as a claim-making device for their political projects; some take it for a myth. There are disagreements almost over every aspect of globalisation including when it has started. Has it become apparent in 1980s, or did it emerge way before that, say, in the 15th century? Let us speculate further: how would the periodization shift if we followed earlier forms of biological exchange, especially if we took non-humans (trees, animals, geological movements) into account? We look at diverse phenomena - so diverse that it sometimes does not even make sense to attach a label to them. Agents are distinct; histories are unalike! Yet, we still want to find some underlying streams and common themes that connect here to there. We want to be able to talk, for example, about the Bangladeshi workers and urban regeneration projects in Istanbul as interconnected phenomena. One of the aims of this course is to disentangle a complex series of processes, which are (rightly or wrongly) called globalisation. Our aim will be to think through this diversity, look at its different facets and to analyse what globalisation might mean in each and every instance. All along, we will develop a sense for avoiding shortcuts, general statements, and binary forms of thinking such as 'local versus global'. The course will sharpen your analytical understanding; make you keen on some hot issues about globalisation; make it harder for you to jump into conclusions, and instead, make you approach issues from a sociological point of view.

Is it possible to determine the political position of a columnist? While Turkey is in the process of being more powerfully interdependent with the global world, there has been several political shifts since 2000s which has caused a lot of transitions between political positions. This process has lead to some changes and more importantly some diversifications in commonly accepted judgments about opinion leaders, as well as reconstructions within the intellectual framework of many opinion leaders. This course aims at evaluating these “new” joint political views with reference to the traditional political outlines. Today's opinion leaders and columnists will be examples to be studied in this context.The literature on political positions will be presented – such as liberal (democrat), conservative (democrat), liberal left, second republican, secularist, conservative nationalist, conservative religious, etc. On the other hand, while an American type of polarization continues in Turkish politics, the role of the media in the construction of these several subcategories on political views will be one of the discussion topics.

In this course, methods of acquiring knowledge on law and the relationship of law with other universes of thought and praxis are evaluated. Problems of existence (the formation and adoption of normative order) and language (indeterminacy–determinacy of law): the elements of law as a system (norms and principles) and its relations (the relationships of normative systems with each other) and, finally, the problem of value (natural law within the context of justice and freedom) are concentrated on and discussed. These discussions are evaluated in their contexts in the history of thought, with chronological leaps and special focus on contemporary thought.

In their golden years, the young Arab nations gave birth to aspiring modern urban projects. In a part of the world where the notion of nation-state has run bankrupt, it seems brave to revisit the ambitious products of this long gone Modern era. These latent and inanimate structures bear great potential for recovery; it might be time to reinvent them. The course intends to revisit the Modern Arab architecture by injecting it with instruments of a different nature. Students will be asked to construct individual stories stemming from their study of The Tripoli International Fair, thus deriving a situation and program, to ultimately intervene through a device spontaneously grafting itself onto this latent corpse. The exercise is an attempt to still extract meaning through the manipulation of this phantom, while considering the bitter realities of its present situation in opposition to the socio-political and economical context that produced it.

Basic Design II is the second semester design studio during which students advance the concepts they become familiar with in Basic Design I. The discoveries related to compositions, compilations, arrangements and re-arrangements from the first semester studio are explored with greater concentration on the two basic components of the design process: human and spatial. Weekly and monthly assignments motivate students to explore space(s) as analytically organized sequences, hubs, clusters and containers, while the human component is examined as the perceiver, the contained, the acquiescent and/or the objector of that very space. Students investigate the concepts of form, light and material as space makers. Three-dimensional physical model-making helps students understand the role of surfaces, solids and voids in making spaces. The material properties of the medium used in model making expand the ideas related to connections and detailing in construction. The computational technologies become an inherent part of the studio, supporting if not driving the studies.

Course Description
The particular objective of the ARCH 401 studio is to understand, evaluate and intervene with a 'valuable' object of architecture in regard to its attributes and its position within the historical and urban context. The studio evolves around the selected entity that constitutes an important element of urban memory and possesses potentials for enabling debates on concepts and acts of: public/private, performance/function, restoration/rehabilitation, conservation/restitution. Students are guided to hold detailed analysis on building, close surrounding and urban context levels, in order to recognize and interpret the building in terms its features and values as well as problems associated with it. These analysis will be the basis for design process, where the students are expected to develop a multi-level adaptive reuse scenario followed with a coherent approach presenting architectural intervention decisions and methods.

On their final semester within their graduate education, this studio aims to make students utilize various information and skills for organizing complex architectural functions in coherence. In doing so, students are asked to develop their proposals based on site analysis, case-studies and studio work, as well as various design exercises addressing the design for specific architectural components such as structural system. materials and light utilization in parallel with the spatial qualities and the functions.

Course Description
The course intends to revisit the potentials of the concept of roof; not only as an architectural expression but as an architectural space. A research on the history, performance, and spatial expressions of different roof typologies will be followed by speculative roof additions to existing everyday buildings. Subjective readings of the existing structure and its logic will be used to establish the rules and constraints for the addition. Particular emphasis will be given to the understanding of the relationship between structure, light, and space as well as the staking of a position relative to the existing.

Course Description
In their golden years, the young Arab nations gave birth to aspiring modern urban projects. In a part of the world where the notion of nation-state has run bankrupt, it seems brave to revisit the ambitious products of this long gone Modern era. These latent and inanimate structures bear great potential for recovery; it might be time to reinvent them. The course intends to revisit the Modern Arab architecture by injecting it with instruments of a different nature. Students will be asked to construct individual stories stemming from their study of The Tripoli International Fair, thus deriving a situation and program, to ultimately intervene through a device spontaneously grafting itself onto this latent corpse. The exercise is an attempt to still extract meaning through the manipulation of this phantom, while considering the bitter realities of its present situation in opposition to the socio-political and economical context that produced it.

Course Description
Vertical Studios emerge from the critical shifts in the conventional studio structure in Industrial Product Design departments. First of all, such a studio aimes to break the common, year-based studio formation by experimenting with a vertical organization. Second, third and fourth year students participate in the studio, where the goal is to construct a studio system based on concepts and issues instead of years and requirements. Students experience a wide range of issues from fundamentals of product design to mass production, human-machine interaction, craftsmanship, new production techniques, electronic and mechanical products. Each section has a different field of interest such as medical design, transportation design, furniture, communication & interaction products, sanitary products, and alike. Students will work in individual and collaborative assignments to understand and reflect on the subjects and develop projects with/for local producers, industry brands, NGO’s and several institutions.
