Creation of the commercial node : Söğütözü, Ankara

Barbaros, Yavuz Selim
The aim of the study is to discuss and determine the property relations, development patterns and major agents at Sögütözü region in Ankara, where is claimed to be new central business node, developing with ultimate architectural, constructional efforts and highly sophisticated land speculations. Rapid transformation in characteristic of Sögütözü region from agricultural use to commercial uses at twenty years does not only display contemporary space creation efforts, but also shows tendencies of private entrepreneurs in Ankara. Increasing commercial activities on the land and introduce of new modes of interaction patterns, which are related with the rise of private property in neo-liberal era after 1980, also brings out changing protocols on property ownership patterns. In this context, Sögütözü case is related with discourses about repositioning of private initiatives on urban issues. However this becomes critical, when reconsidering, the capital city was designed to be modern cradle of republic by the public comprehensive planning initiatives. The current situation at the region is bringing new sets of confronting concepts between comprehensive planning approaches and property capital̕s space creation methods. Figuring out basics of space creation agencies and achieving appropriate design guidelines at Sögütözü may not only provide efficient well-growth of the specific sector of the city, but also bring out alternative solutions to achieve urban compromise in Ankara. For that reason, determinations on property formation, physical developments at Sögütözü should be studied in historical context.


Estimation of water alternating gas (wag) injection performance of an offshore field (azeri field,azerbaijan) using a sector simulation model
Babayev, Farid; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2008)
The WAG injection project feasibility of South Flank of Central Azeri field on the basis of simulation model was studied in this thesis work. The 58 sensitivity scenarios were considered to evaluate and analyze the behavior of WAG in this field. Scenarios are based on the important WAG parameters, such as half slug size volume, cycles, WAG ratio, start time, bottomhole injection pressure etc. The Base Case is set with static and dynamic characteristic close to real field. From the scenarios calculated, the ...
Risk assessment of international construction projects using the analytic network process
Bu-Qammaz, Amani Suliman; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
This thesis offers a comprehensive risk assessment methodology that provides a decision support tool, directed for Turkish construction organizations, which can be utilized through the bidding decisions for international construction projects. Within this context the analytic network process technique is implemented to develop a risk assessment model, which is used to derive the relative priorities of the risk factors associated with international construction projects. The findings of the risk assessment m...
Adaptability of generative algorithms: a means to sustaining the dynamic design processes
Damdere, Ekin; Özkar, Mine; Department of Architecture (2010)
This thesis is an investigation focusing on the adaptability of generative systems in a dynamic design problem, where the problem definition changes according to the changing conditions of the environment and transforming needs of the architectural space. This thesis, instead of discussing the dynamicity of the design processes, investigates the use of an adaptable generative system in a case-specific dynamic design problem to sustain its changing problem definitions. The research mainly looks into the pote...
Mass customizing the relations of design constraints for designer-built computational models
Ercan, Selen; Özkar, Mine; Department of Architecture (2010)
The starting motivation of this study is to develop an intuitively strong approach to addressing architectural design problems through computational models. Within the scope of the thesis, the complexity of an architectural design problem is modeled computationally by translating the design reasoning into parameters, constraints and the relations between these. Such a model can easily become deterministic and defy its purpose, if it is customized with pre-defined and unchangeable relations between the const...
Rebii Gorbon: Mimarlık Ve Seramik Arasında Bir Kariyer
Yüzer, Canse (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2021-6-30)
Yirminci yüzyıl, Türkiye’de mimarlık mesleğinin profesyonelleşmesinin yanı sıra meslek güzergahlarının çeşitlenmesine de tanıklık eder. Bu çerçevede hem mimari hem de sanatsal ve endüstriyel seramiğin tasarım ve üretim alanlarında öne çıkan faaliyetleriyle Rebii Gorbon’un meslek hayatı, dönemi içerisinde dikkat çekici bir örnek oluşturur. Bu çalışma, büyük oranda bilinmezliklerle yüklü olan Gorbon’un çok yönlü kariyerini arşiv ve literatür araştırmalarının yanı sıra ailesi, meslektaşları ve öğrencileriyle y...
