METU Ar-Ge Office
Ankara, Turkey
Middle East Technical University in Ankara is one of the most important universities in Turkey, with around 20'000 students. This office building occupies a key position at the western entrance to METU-Technopolis, which provides research and development facilities to help promote the growth of high-tech businesses. Its design was guided by the principles of ease of construction, low cost, unity of internal and external spaces, and the relation between daylight and the depth of the interior. Horizontal and vertical solar shades are carried by steel frames, while the facade incorporates stone and aluminium and rockwool composite panels.
