Considering the established and developing urban pattern of
Düzce, it can be predicted that the campus land, which will be the focal point
between the city center and the developing city area in the east, will
undertake a binding task within the urban pattern. The spine, designed with
this responsibility, forms the main pedestrian axis in the east-west direction.
The basic setup that shapes the entire campus and buildings creates
various collisions, encounters and associations by coinciding the internal
circulation of the buildings with the internal circulation of the campus,
taking into account the climatic conditions. In this way, rather than a
pedestrian axis feeding the entire campus and the circulations for the building
attached to it pointwise, rather wide cross-section overlaps will offer a very
rich and new experience to the users at the intersections. In these
cross-section spaces, the person will ask himself whether he is inside the
building or on the campus. At the same time, the interior life of the buildings
will be the first factor that enriches the spine.
The campus meets the city with a large square in the
northwest direction. Surrounded by cultural buildings, sports buildings and
areas, and the administration building, this square meets the main entrance as
the beginning of the urban spine. These buildings, which are planned in an
easily accessible area of the campus by the residents of the city, interfere with
the privacy of the education and dormitory units the least.
