ORDU UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF MEDICINE MORPHOLOGY BUILDING
Ordu University Faculty of Medicine Morphology Building consist of 3 blocks; Education Units in the center, Instructor Unit and Conference Unit in two separate branches at the back. Because of the sloping field of the project site, the Morphology Building has been designed to be compatible with the topography, and block entrances from different levels have been defined.
Students, academicians and visitors entries separation is considered in transportation to the building, and pedestrian and vehicle axes were arranged accordingly. The flows of the student and staff units, which are zoned differently within the building, do not conflict in horizontal and vertical circulation, except for the common areas. Between the Student Entrance (on the lower level), the Academician Entrance and Conference Entrance (on the 2 upper floors), continuity is ensured by the social circulation spine with the gallery.
Considering that students spend most of their time on campus, a student-oriented design approach has been adopted. It is aimed that the spaces will benefit from daylight at the maximum level. The amphitheater stairs in the building creates both circulation and social space. There are also cadaver and laboratory units in the Morphology Building, which has a closed area of 17.000 m².
