Tülce, Ayten Hüma
The aim of this thesis is to develop conservation principles for the brick and tile industry in Eskişehir, one of the symbolic industrial cities in Turkey where brick and tile has been the significant production from the Early Republic Period.

The principles how to conserve and why is searched through discussions on conservation approaches, development plans and values. Focusing on this aim, this study is structured in six parts as the research on industrialization and industrial heritage, review and discussion of value types, survey on brick and tile industry, the value assessment process for the factories with the proposed value types and the implementation of conservation principles. In conclusion, the development of principles is an essential process in conservation of cultural heritage. This thesis proposes conservation principles over physical, social and administrative structure for industrial heritage for brick and tile factories in the Eskişehir Industrial Area.
