Technological innovations in the field of information and communication have transformed the nature of the spatial realm. The spatial realm has been engaged with the virtual realm, where a new approach has been mandatory for a possible and productive interrelation between the two. On the other hand, new technologies have affected architectural drafting, representation, construction and most significantly architectural design to generate remarkable conveniences and unnoticed interfaces for architects. New technologies offer a common arithmetical medium where a new augmented relationship between sciences and architectural design is enabled. All these transformations prepared the basis for a redefinition and reevaluation of the surrounding realm that is referred to as the context of architectural design. The recurrence of contextualist and de-contextualist debates and attitudes show that context is dealt with as a multi-layered concept in architecture. Within all above mentioned transformations, the issue of contextualism in architecture is reopened up where the definition of context is seen to be in a process of constant renovation, inheriting the complexities new technologies and design methods based on interdisciplinarity have brought. This thesis looks into this transformating status of the concept of context and argues for its productivity in architectural design.

Enabling Grids for E-sciencE III (EGEE-III)
Şener, Cevat(2010-4-30)
A globally distributed computing Grid now plays an essential role for large-scale, data intensive science in many fields of research. The concept has been proven viable through the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project (EGEE and EGEE-II, 2004-2008) and its related projects. EGEE-II is consolidating the operations and middleware of this Grid for use by a wide range of scientific communities, such as astrophysics, computational chemistry, earth and life sciences, fusion and particle physics. Strong quality ass...
Smart and sustainable urban districts: assessment systems and case studies
Özkan Öztürk, Huriye Nur; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2017)
The Smart city concept has become an important strategic planning mechanism in past decade or so, with respect to the combination of sustainability, information and communication technologies for urban development in many countries. This study is aimed at an in depth analysis of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) related to the smart city concept and its applicability to urban neighborhoods. The research is based on case studies in from around the world to determine the instruments of smartness; since th...
Sustainability-oriented innovation system analyses of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Turkey and Singapore
Kılkış, Şiir (2016-09-01)
The coherency of research, development, and innovation processes are vital in promoting a more resource efficient society. Sustainability-oriented innovation systems define specific kinds of innovation systems, i.e. those that are directed to the aims of sustainable development. This paper develops an integrated method with four layers of analysis to evaluate the priorities and performances of such systems. The method is applied to a sample of emerging and innovation based economies, namely Brazil, Russia, ...
