Within the framework of an architectural workshop approach, every design subject is a new situation and a new beginning with its unique requirements. It is also a problem where cliché solutions cannot be proposed. Each new design is based on the specific technological possibilities, materials, colors, and climate of that place. In such a creative process, temporary and trendy approaches are rejected from the outset. Instead, a philosophy that centers on existence, nature, and humans is adopted. Sensitivity to users' needs is always at the forefront during the design process. Providing economical solutions is a prerequisite. The main reason for this is that in a world where materials and resources are constantly decreasing, approaches that prioritize technology and form demonstration are no longer acceptable.
