Off-grid | Furkan Balcı – Mert Yılmaz – Utku Doğanay
- Anyone can be an architect.
- The individual’s own efforts, experiences, and solution methods produced in the face of problems are an educational process for him. The process is education itself.
- Since learning is based on processes, it cannot have a singular space.
- This educational process is a creative process that determines the means of its own architectural vision and is dedicated to discovering their boundaries.
- This process is not singular, it is personal shaped according to the individual’s own interests.
- Since the potentials of each are different, education is too subjective to be formal.
- Architecture and its education cannot get out of date; it must internalise all the developments affecting and changing human life. It must be in the pursuit of creating new ones.
- “Architecture” designs interactions, architectural object interacts with the city and the citizens. What is needed for education is an “INTERSPACE” in which interactions can be designed.
- Technological development alters the way we live, we learn, and thus design and construct.
- Architecture education cannot be considered independent of production.
- Education does not have space, there is the space of production.
