Private Sezin School Open Roof Space Project was designed as a pedagogical space with a spatially hybrid program that fosters meeting, making, learning and working. To this end, borrowing from Fuller’s trimtab concept, the project intervened in a lightweight yet effective manner and chose the formerly dormant empty rooftop space of the existing building, measured at approximately 1,700 m² within 15,000 m². This scale difference allowed for experimentation while offering sufficient room for a critically diverse program.
TEB Fikirbazlar is an applied learning journey that aimed to develop strategies, innovative products, services and business models for 21st century. Coalescing young talents across the organization and matching them with appropriate senior leaders, the project enabled both sustainable capacity building as well as new product development. Via an interdisciplinary, prototyping-based learning journey, we were able to improve the participants’ leadership abilities while helping them deliver 9 different prototypes, 5 of which were selected for next phase funding and further iterations.
