Computational Design Lab

Mine Ozkar Welcome

The Code Lab welcomes Professor Mine Ozkar as a visiting scholar for the 2018-2019 academic year. During her visit, Professor Ozkar will participate in several of the lab’s academic and research initiatives. She is also working on a research project that explores ancient building traditions from a computational perspective. 

Professor Ozkar is a Professor of Architecture at Istanbul Technical University, Turkey, and the coordinator, since 2018, of the graduate program in Architectural Design Computing. Collaborating with design professionals, computer scientists, and art historians, her research focuses on visual, spatial, and material aspects of design computation —as well as on their integration to foundational design education. In some of her previous work, she has interpreted the history and theory of progressive pedagogy in art and design from a computational perspective. She is the author of Rethinking Basic Design in Architectural Education (Routledge, 2017), and the co-editor of Shaping Design Teaching (Aalborg University Press, 2012). Mine co-chaired CAADFutures 2017 in Istanbul, is a member of the editorial board of Nexus Network Journal on architecture and mathematics, and previously served on the elected editorial board for ACADIA International Journal of Architectural Computing.
