Intellectually; The fact that many branches of art come together to receive education and work together is considered as the starting point of the design and the form was developed in this direction.
An artistic fiction that develops around a main building becomes functional and takes the form of a piano, and the transformation begins at this point and breaks and splits occur.
Campus Main Building has been solved in one piece due to its functional and central nature and cultural activities and main show venues have been placed in this building.
