BASIC PRINCIPLES OF MORPHOLOGY
Natural disasters are caused by the basic elements/powers – fire, air, earth, water. Humans can be added to the list because often man through his actions can have a negative effect on nature. As a result these changing elements become five in total. The regular pentagon symbolizes the harmony between man and the elements. Therefore we chose it as a starting point for our form shaping.

“DO IT BEFORE NOT AFTER” – floating structures operation – A new way to think at disaster The worlds is becoming more and more sensitive to the climate changing, that, according to the most reputed studies, will have heavy and often dramatic effects on the earth and on us. Recently very well known dramatic events pushed the citizens, the governments and the organizations to think new and more appropriate strategies in order to provide relief to the population’s victims of these catastrophic natural events. This is the aim of this competition too. In medicine there are mostly two ways to try to reduce the impact of diseases on people; one is to cure and the other one is to prevent. We all know that to prevent is better than to cure.

Thailand is a country at risk of water disaster both draught and flood. Considering its size, the country has a great length of rivers in its water network, specially the central delta. Together with monsoon behavior around the region, Thailand has always been worried about more than less water to use. But delirious sprawl of cities and irresponsible agriculture lands trigger huge imbalance of water flow; insufficient to use during dry season and larger scale flood during rainy season.

DISASTER PREVENTION AND EDUCATION CENTER
The rich culture of Turkey includes a monument to human achievement, invention, and practicality – a site called Cappadocia. More than two thousand years ago, the people of the region sought a strong, permanent and imposing shelter. Inspired by the natural geological formations in the region which withstood all natural onslaughts, the people carved and “engineered” homes and public spaces within those natural rock formations. They did this with such skill and esthetics that it still echoes today with vibrancy and life.

On a site almost without context because of its vast scale and open development plans, the Istanbul Disaster Prevention and Education Centre (DPEC) represents a new beginning for the Expo area adjacent to the Atatürk International Airport. Today, the area is a typical example of a generic, market driven development without a common goal. It consists of tall isolated buildings trying to express their individuality rather than performing as a coherent whole. The site is situated in a void between city and airport, where public space is nonexistent, isolated buildings are surrounded by their own private sea of parking.
