The design refers to geometries and matheamtics of minimal surfaces. Minimal surfaces, or Optimal geometries, are surfaces with a mean curvature of zero.

Minimal surfaces are equivalently described as one that is equally bent in all directions so as to have zero average curvature, and can be understood as the surfaces of smallest area spanning a given contour.

The study of minimal surfaces is a branch of differential geometry, because the methods of differential calculus are applied to geometrical problems.

Unbordered minimal surfaces have the property that each point is the center of a small patch that behaves like a soapfilm relative to its boundary contour.

Physical models of area-minimizing minimal surfaces can be made by dipping a wire frame into a soap solution, forming a soap film, which is a minimal surface whose boundary is the wire frame.

Moebius strip and klein bottle are among individual non-orientable minimal surface.The design uses the geometrical characteristics of the modules to allow for high degree of variations and compositions the ornamental aspect is derived by structural and geometrical properties of the module itself.

The new campus of TAC SEV is built across from the existing property of Tarsus American College (TAC). Considering its proximity to the historic context of the school, the new campus is conceived, as a design principle, a part of the TAC campus it is separated from by a road that traverses the premises. An […]
