METU Research Park, Turkey

METU Research Park was built on the campus of Middle East Technical University, one of Turkey’s deeply rooted and internationally active institutions.

It was commissioned to allow all of the school’s research and application units to continue their work in better conditions, to allow more researchers to access the school’s central infrastructure, to launch interdisciplinary projects and strengthen the university’s contributions to industry and society.

With this in mind, the architects envisioned specialized spaces (eg, laboratories and clean rooms) for common use that would allow for more effective and efficient use of school resources.

Several university departments were also involved in the rather detailed planning phase, providing input on how to set up the project in space. The data collected from these studies was then used to finalize the design. In this 28,000 square meter building, laboratories, research facilities/offices, conference/meeting rooms, seminar rooms, exhibition spaces and social facilities are distributed.

The research park is designed to provide spatial support for new research clusters and centers alongside existing centers that will move in as soon as the building opens.

The architectural language of the project is derived from a kind of primitivism that dominates the buildings constructed in the first phase of the establishment of the METU Campus.

The material palette in this setting consists of exposed concrete and natural wood, along with a structural system designed to be equally simple and clean.

The fluidity and tension that emerges each time this system is unloaded, has given rise to perspectives that surprise the eye at certain points of the building.

Quite similar in nature to the main buildings of the Metu campus, establishing a significant sense of continuity between interior and exterior spaces and in this respect linking the pedestrian axis to the walkway (i.e. i.e. the backbone of the main colony) was targeted.
