Acoustical analysis and taxonomy of performance halls in Early Republican Period in Ankara: Resim Heykel Müzesi, Küçük Tiyatro and Opera

Örün, Gonca
Comprehensive studies are required to understand the design of the performance halls in Turkish Early Republican Period. Acoustics, a significant parameter in performance hall design, has been chosen to contribute the studies. Three pioneers of the period, Resim Heykel Museum, Küçük Theatre and Opera Halls, are chosen as cases. The acoustical qualities of performance halls of Turkish Early Republican period in Ankara is studied in parallel to the acoustical design of performance halls in Europe which may reveal similarities in case halls. Detailed 3-D models of the halls for acoustical simulations based on the original design data have been prepared and results are to be compared with acoustically recognized halls in the world.
