It makes a future proposal in accordance with the vision of Izmir becoming the “design capital” of Mediterranean in the designated urban space. Unit 2 “Design [for] the future” is based on future scenarios and aims to design a building in İnciraltı area of Izmir in the year 2054 and Unit 3 exercises a design methodology based on contemporary computational technologies.
