A typology of ancient theatres in modern Spain and Greece a geo-historical approach
Aktüre, Zeynep; Erder, Cevat; Department of Architecture (2005)
This study offers an inquiry into the historical context of the invention, consolidation, and on-going popularity of the ancient theatre typology based on the Greek-Roman ءbinarism̕, for a better understanding of its philosophical and theoretical foundations. It scrutinises those foundations in order to discover, in their limitations for an assessment and restitution of the architectural characteristics of extant ancient theatre remains, a new set of variables for devising an alternative method of classific...
An analysis of Architect Sinan's late period mosques
Katipoğlu, Ceren; Erzen, Jale Adile; Department of History of Architecture (2007)
This thesis focuses on the late period mosques of architect Sinan in terms of their structural systems, the relation with their environment, and the identities of their patrons. The links amongst the role of the patron, his or her status in the state, materials used in the mosques, location choice and the spatial distribution of the mosques are researched on the bases of these six late period mosques of Sinan. In this perspective, the social background of the Ottoman Empire in the sixteenth century is the f...

Grand hotels in major cities of Turkey, 1950-1980 : an evaluation of modern architecture and tourism
Tozoğlu, Ahmet Erdem; Altan, Tomris Elvan; Department of History of Architecture (2007)
This study aims to analyze the stanbul Hilton, the zmir Grand Efes and the Grand Ankara Hotels, which are owned by the Pension Fund, during the 1950-1980 period that witnessed the formation process of modern tourism and tourism architecture in Turkey. As the first five-star hotels of their cities, these buildings provide the possibility of tracing the social transformation processes at the second half of the 20th century beyond their architectural properties that reflect and affect the zeitgeist of the pe...
On the Possibility of Endohedrally Helium-doped TEX - A DFT Treatment
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Wiley, 2018-10-02)
TEX is a caged, nitramine type explosive material. To envisage the response of its bonds against stretching, an inert atom, helium, is doped into interior cavity of TEX molecule. Density functional theory at the level of B3LYP/6-31++G(d,p) was employed to investigate some physicochemical and quantum chemical properties of the helium-doped TEX (He@TEX) and compared with TEX and TEX+He composite systems. The result of helium doping caused swelling of TEX cage but no bond rupture occurred. The doped helium ato...
