The recent developments in urban conservation and urban archaeology have given considerable importance to the presentation of urban archaeological remains to the public in order to raise public awareness for conservation. Parallel to this, in the last decade, urban planners have begun to seek for alternatives for creating sustainable places with the emphasis on sustainable urban development. These two goals of different disciplines meet themselves in the integration of urban archaeological remains to modern town and to modern life in historic town centers. In this context, this thesis aims to discuss how these urban archaeological resources can be integrated to everyday life in historic town centers. This is achieved by investigating two successful European cases Tarragona and Verona, and then discussing their possible contributions to a Turkish case Tarsus.

Resolving the historic urban tissue by tracing the changes as a basis for its conservation : Samsun from 20th century until today
Yazıcı, Merve; Bilgin Altınöz, Ayşe Güliz; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2013)
This thesis identifies the causes and the process of the change of the historic city center of Samsun since the beginning of the 20th century by the role of the development and conservation activities. Because of rapid urban growth and the lack of conservation principles in city plans, most of the city centers have been subjected to growth-conservation contradiction. As a result of this, the historic city centers lose their unique characteristics and cultural heritage while they change rapidly. The city of ...
The role of institutions in promoting public interest within the context of cultural and natural heritage conservation: the case of Gökova
Özdemir, Gizem Ergüç; Kayasü, Serap; Department of City and Regional Planning (2009)
This thesis discusses the role of institutions in promoting public interest within the context of cultural and natural heritage conservation. Due to the fact that the concept of public interest is controversial and may differ from one context to another, and that there are numerous institutions, the role of institutions in public interest promoting process limited to the context of conservation. A large number of public institutions develop policies that have significant implications for the conservation of...
Conservation of archaeological sites in urban areas in turkey : Soli-Pompeiopolis as a case study
Sarıkaya Levent, Yasemin; Tuna, Numan; Department of City and Regional Planning (2008)
Urban development has long been the major threat to archaeological sites. Recent theoretical discussions advocate that archaeological sites in urban areas should be protected not only through technical solutions and archaeological studies, but also through spatial planning processes, which define basic mechanisms to direct and control the urban development. Despite a specific type of spatial plan, the ‘conservation plan’ in Turkish legislation, negative impacts of urban development on archeological sites co...
Soundness assessment of historic structural timber by the use of non-destructive methods
Kandemir, Ayşenur; Saltık, Emine Nevin; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2010)
The use of non-destructive testing (NDT) methods was needed for the conservation studies of historic timber structures. The aim of this study was to develop combined use of ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) measurements and infrared (IR) thermography, together with visual analyses for soundness assessment of timber. An important timber structure in Ankara, Aslanhane Mosque and traditional timber dwellings, in Ayaş and İstiklal District were selected for in-situ analyses. Representative laboratory samples such...
Urban compactness : a study of Ankara urban form
Çalışkan, Olgu; Günay, Baykan; Urban Design in City and Regional Planning Department (2003)
Sustainable urban development is mentioned together with the concept of urban form in contemporary planning literature. The main reason behind this is a need for determining an ideal physical development scheme and its main principles of urban future in a broad term. Besides, the operational side of urban planning requires a concrete set of design codes in order to transform urban space in both macro and mezzo scale. At this point, the concept of urban compactness and the idea of Compact City have come into...
