The fast invasion of computers during the last 20-30 years has generated a virtual kind of space with its own virtual architecture. The novel digital tools offer great possibilities in architectural practice, both in the design and production of buildings, transforming radically the way architects work and create.</p><p>They also transform architectural education, as the architecture curriculum is being rapidly de-materialized, with digital-based courses displacing conventional ones. In the current enthusiasm about digital design, a leading emphasis is given to the geometric aspects of buildings as virtual objects, with anaemic coverage of their spatial materiality and the dynamics of time.</p><p>As a direct witness of architectural education for over three decades, I can identify certain tendencies among average students:- a gradual diminishing of their &rsquo;analogue&rsquo; skills, ...</p> https://archinect.com/blog/article/126281461/half-a-century-in-architectural-education HALF-A-CENTURY IN ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION Michael Young 2015-04-27T13:07:52-04:00 >2015-04-27T13:07:52-04:00 <p><strong>T&uuml;rel Saranl&#305; will be speaking at the TRANS_ARCH_EDU morning panel on</strong><br><strong>29 April Wednesday, 13:30</strong><br>&#304;zmir University of Economics, Faculty of Fine Arts and Design</p><p><img alt="Guzden Varinlioglu's photo." src="https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/s526x395/11179941_10152884549571242_7454464488020424741_n.jpg?oh=fc7635561367b53bfd1b9633701411b5&amp;oe=55A7B9C3&amp;__gda__=1436938709_1b358b90fe246d9daca8c68aceb3cf8e"></p><p>T&uuml;rel Saranl&#305;, a professor of professors, is an architect and a lecturer at Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara.

Starting with the program (or problem definition), through design conception, development and construction, all the way to accommodation, architectural practice inevitably and essentially necessitates the involvement and integration of a wide range of disciplines. It is hard to think of any other practice that involves as many disciplines as architecture does. Yet, we still feel the need to discuss the importance of interdisciplinarity, to emphasize the necessity of incorporating interdisciplinary strategies while talking about its education. Why interdisciplinarity? Why now?</p><p>Here, I argue that a critical assessment of the current models of architecture education and the need for adopting a fresh look leads us to go back to its basic premises, and to rethinking what architectural practice is.

Architectural discourse, theory and practice today have to additionally deal with a new crisis arising from the encounter with digital media. The role of computers in the more creative aspects of architectural design is still however, limited and the promise of digital tools heralding a new era in our ways of designing is far from being realized. There has been huge gap between what is theoretically possible with computation and current practice; between the potential of digital media and actual usage by architects. On one hand architecture has seen the widespread adoption of computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) as representation tools in the last 2 decades.

In an interdisciplinary cooperation with the department of art history numerous projects were carried out. A lot of them were shown in exhibitions in Germany. The possibility that their work would be part of a professional exhibition was a great motivation for the students.</p><p>In the speech Marc Grellert will show a selection of the work in Darmstadt and talk about the potentials, the procedures and the different forms of presentation of virtual reconstructions.

While such discourse was centered around the theme of criticality and meaning until the beginning of the 21st century, recent emphasis is on efficacy and production. I argue that the two trends are not necessarily mutually exclusive and the locus of architectural creativity lies at the realization that the architectural product is always already a historically determined cultural product.</p><p><strong>Professor Baydar will be speaking at the TRANS_ARCH_EDU morning panel on<br>29 April Wednesday, 10:30</strong><br>&#304;zmir University of Economics, Faculty of Fine Arts and Design</p><p><a href="https://iuearch10.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/17302_657078314398170_8182920190071332401_n.jpg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img alt="17302_657078314398170_8182920190071332401_n" src="https://iuearch10.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/17302_657078314398170_8182920190071332401_n.jpg?w=257"></a></p><p>Prof. G&uuml;ls&uuml;m Baydar received her Ph.D. degree in architectural history at the University of California, Berkeley.
