Friday Seminar Series VI: Computare | Architecture, Technology and Education

Tarih: 09/12/2013
Friday 08th of March 2013, 12:00-14:00, GAU - Millennium Senate Congress Hall


Computare | Architecture, Technology and Education

By: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Şebnem Yalınay Çinici (Head of Architecture Department, İstanbul Bilgi University)
Abstract:

In contemporary world of design and education computation becomes one of the very hot topics of architectural debate. Computation is mostly understood with its affinity with mathematical understanding of world and numeric logic. But when we trace the meaning of the word to its etymological origin, there appears another way of thinking related with the word through 'settling things together'. If we further the word trace on mathematics, another layer of meaning on learning and teaching at the same time encounters us. And, when we try to understand computation in its relation with architecture and design, there emerges another body of knowledge that extends into the British avantgarde movement and discussions on "third culture". So, this lecture is an endeavor to further the discussion on computation and design through its hidden meanings and its misunderstandings by illustrating an approach on first year design education.
