Road Academy: "School of Bodrum"
People of Bodrum do not experience history, they live in it. A piece of history that came out of the ground can be seen in each part of Bodrum. So the effect of archeology on Bodrum is very important. Likewise, another element that creates this trace in Bodrum is people of Bodrum, that is, people as agents. In between the layers of Bodrum, people's connection to history connects them to both soil and production. Since Bodrum is a third habitation space, which means most people who are experts in their profession in Turkey move to Bodrum after retirement, Bodrum has a huge intellectual capacity. The project proposes an archeology and history faculty of Aegean University in Bodrum. Bodrum's autonomous intellectual body is a trigger for the architectural program. Academics that dismissed with the delegated legislation, have a program named “street academy” that they have been carrying out since 2016, which suggests that education and knowledge production cannot be held by a monopolized power, so that streets, parks can be a place for education, sharing and knowledge production. Accordingly, the project proposes a "road academy" including an open university that transforms the common public spaces as well.
