In-between spaces: the METU Faculty of Architecture building complex

İnan, Fatma Serra
In-between spaces are interpreted in multiple contexts, scales and considered both as a material and an immaterial space within the scope of this study. The extent of the research is limited to the METU Faculty of Architecture Building Complex; yet, the outputs of the work are beyond this restricted area. The concept of in-between spaces is re-defined with its potential to become a theoretical tool for the analysis of the existing and future architecture in relation to its discourse, object and various subjects. The tryptic method of Peter Eisenman, which aims to “blur” the architectural object and to carry it beyond the limits of traditional architecture, is adopted for the classification and the re-interpretation of in-between spaces. The representation medium is photography which has a further role as an analytical research tool. Through the effort of a concrete visualization of a rather abstract concept of in-between spaces, with the “realistic” tool of photography, the thesis itself also stands between materiality and immateriality.
