In the Moment, for the Future: Early Design Education

Kadir Has University Faculty of Art and Design Departments of Architecture – Interior Architecture and Environmental Design

November 1 – December 14, 2014

Location: Kadir Has University Cibali Campus

This project is concerned with how a strong early design education has to establish a sound
sense of visual culture and history, while responding to the current and anticipated issues in design. As creativity is encouraged and celebrated, clear attitude toward a problem
and resourcefullness are musts. Every future generation of designers will continue to be faced with problems that we could afford to ignore, and our understanding of excellent
design will be revisited continously. Foundation design education is a project on introducing
complex relationships in a clear and critical way. Our objective is to educate designers whoare well-rounded individuals with the necessarytools to address a diversity of problems in the
moment but for the future. The students are asked to consider aspects of
a given site context analytically, set clear parameters for their design concepts and
pursue solutions that embody an economy of means and intelligence.
