Resumo: The METU Lodgings Project is located in Ankara, which was established as the Modernist capital of Turkey in 1923. Designed by an architect couple, Altuğ and Behruz Çinici, this unique project reflects with subtle details the “internationality” of its architecture and provides a regional interpretation of Modernity through Anatolian culture. METU Lodgings were designed in pursuit of the idea(l) of Modern City Planning. Due to the adaptation of the concepts developed during the first CIAM meetings in general and the application of the perfect grid as a mediator for site planning in particular, this project can be considered as a distinct product of Modern Architecture. The METU Lodgings are unique not only as an outstanding example of Modern Architecture but also as an early critique of the International Style. The ease in the subtle inclinations of the roofs, the thick brick load bearing walls framing large glass surfaces and the meticulously altered grid of the site layout were a declaration of a unique architecture that was clearly willing to go beyond the “tropes” of Modernism. Therefore, this study focuses on the established demarcation between modern versus traditional, public versus private, transparent versus opaque, pitched versus flat that was later blurred in the competent juxtaposition of these “binary oppositions”.
