Students of architecture and design learn more from each other than they do from their teachers. Therefore, the entire school was conceived as a large studio.

There is no wall separating the areas of use surrounding the 25 meter-high atrium from the areas of circulation and, by extension, the entirety of the space. For the group studies, it is quite easy to hang a vertical separation to any one of the beams and create partitions depending on the study methods, and change these when necessary. We consider the synergy created by the togetherness of the students as one of the preconditions of productive work and thus strive to create a setting/environment for that.  The current student body of 1400 is expected to reach 2000 in the next decade; therefore, the space we create will be highly accommodating for the new additions. Considering that the study of design is basically a studio education, we believe that a fruitful educational environment can only be created this way. One of the most important problems of open spaces is acoustics; therefore, we worked with an acoustics consultant from the first decision phase onwards to avoid any possible disaster that might occur in the future. For the advancement of the students’ grasp of material and detail, workshops are also treated as studios and were implemented in the school. Jury areas, meeting, exhibition, and collective work areas have their own, defined spaces within the building, as well as other spaces that can be converted in different ways. What others do should not be a distraction, but an opportunity to learn from others to broaden our vision. As the place of learning, this space derives its strength from exactly that.
