Expanding architecture; a proposal for a multi - functional hall at METU
Turgutoğlu, Burak; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2003)
Standardization, flexibility and transparency had been the eminent keywords of Modern Architecture that have also provided material for the re-interpretation and re-production of several discussions on concepts like ءform̕ and ءfunction̕ in architecture. This study is an inquiry into a number of different interpretations that scrutinize the intricate relationship between architectural form and function in the 20th century with respect to the concepts defined above. The conceptualization of this thesis will ...
A reconsideration of the concept of architectural space in the virtual realm
Kınayoğlu, Gökhan; Mennan, Zeynep; Department of Architecture (2007)
The discovery of new geometries in the 19th century and the departure from an absolute to a relative understanding of space-time, together with the invention of higher dimensions have caused a shift towards the idealization of space. This new type of ideal space was called hyperspace. The counter-intuitive quality of hyperspace has opened up new formal possibilities and representation techniques in art and architecture. In a similar manner, with the introduction of computers, the virtual and immaterial qual...
An assessment of the architectural representation process within the computational design environment
Uçar, Başak; Mennan, Zeynep; Department of Architecture (2006)
With the introduction of a computational design environment, architectural design and representation processes witness a radical transition from the analog to the digital medium, that may be asserted to initiate a paradigm shift affecting both. In this new design environment, extending the instrumentality of computer-aided processes to the generative use of computational tools and procedures, architectural design and representation processes are subject to mutual alterations, challenged with computational d...
A novel approach for renovation of current social housing stock based on energy consumption in Turkey: significance of occupant behaviour
Harputlugil, Guelsu Ulukavak; HARPUTLUGİL, TİMUÇİN; Pedergnana, Matthieu; Sarioglu, Esra (Informa UK Limited, 2019-05-11)
The goal of this research is to attempt establishing occupant behaviour profiles and how that behaviour impacts energy consumption with regard to indoor comfort levels in the current social housing stock in Turkey. The data consists of a large statistical survey that included four housing complexes situated in different climate regions in Turkey. Another more detailed survey was given to occupants of housing blocks in Ankara. Apartments were also monitored during a one-week period in summer and again in win...
An analysis of living environments of the elderly and a project for assisted living in Ankara
Erbaş, İrem; İmamoğlu, Vacit; Department of Architecture (2006)
Ageing has become a significant research area in the last few decades. The most important reason that makes ageing issue significant is the increasing rate of the older indviduals within the population all around the world. Statistical data on ageing both in Turkey and in the world reveals that, in the near future, the number of population over 65 will increase dramatically. It can be asserted that there will be an urgent need of specifically designed accommodation for this portion of the population. Hence,...
