Virtual presentation of cultural heritage case study: Ani /

JodeirieRajaie, Maryam
The field of preservation of historic and cultural heritage has been a multidisciplinary science from the beginning. And the demand for any pioneer technique that may ease the conservation task still lives. In the past four decades computational design has started grow with the aim of conservation and the evolution of its techniques have been helping the specialists in nearly every step of decisions they make, notably in archeology. The digital data derived from a physical site, whether it is an object, monument, territory, or landscape prepares a flexible space for any specialist and student to investigate experience and design without any economical limitations. Also the virtual recreation has been very important especially in archeological manner when you get to rebuilt any missed part of the heritage without touching it in reality. The advantage of this digital data gets more amazing when we get to add the details of the life that had been going on in there. The digital recreation when joined with stimulation and turning to slides and videos is highly potentiated to be presented to public or special groups in order to transmit information about any aspect of the heritage to them. The Surp Amena P’rkich Church at archeological site of Ani in Kars province of Turkey has been studied in this research and its story has been chosen as the case to be told by simple techniques and a short movie.


Biological mortar application for micro-crack remediation in stones of travertine monuments
Sırt Çıplak, Elif; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman; Bilecen, Kıvanç; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2018)
Traditional conservation methods for the preservation of historical stones including applications with inorganic and organic polymers are often inadequate and results in introduction of new deterioration problems to historic structures. At this point, consolidating a stone by re-creating a structure similar to original microstructure of stone is a new approach developed to ensure the maximum compatibility by comparison to the traditional conservation techniques. In this study it was aimed to develop a susta...
A Study for the conservation of Ertem olive-oil factory in Ayvalık /
Yıldız, Gözde; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2017)
Conservation and re-adaptation of industrial heritage has been a quite important aspect in the sense of continuity of the historic industrial character of the place for future generations.

A Framework for sustainable urban mobility in historic urban landscapes: a proposal for antalya kaleiçi
Uluç, Aynur; Bilgin Altınöz, Ayşe Güliz; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2014)
The main subject of the thesis is the mobility systems in historic urban landscapes. In this respect, the aim of the thesis is to provide “a framework for Sustainable Urban Mobility (SUM) in Historic Urban Landscapes (HULs)” together with the process, principles and tools that will solve the mobility problems while contributing to conservation and promotion its values and significance. In this regard, the thesis is structured mainly in two parts. In the first part, the current mobility systems, existing pro...
A Study on reusing Bouleuterion of Teos /
Çalışkan, Merve; Gökce, Fuat; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2015)
This study is constructed upon the question of “How should we approach to a building in an archaeological site for its compatible and sustainable utilization?” as a contemporary phenomenon which was and still has been considered for ancient places of performances and Bouleuterion in Teos Archaeological site - an architectural remain in excavation process, is assessed as the case of the study.

Interpretation and presentation of the Byzantine cultural heritage at Sultanahmet in İstanbul
Özcan, Ceren; Serin, Ufuk; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2019)
This research is based upon the premise that effective conservation of cultural heritage can only be achieved through promoting awareness and understanding of history and past cultures. As a result of either the selection or exclusion of particular periods or areas of the past in the conservation of cultural heritage in Turkey (and elsewhere), Late Antique and Byzantine periods have long been neglected. The lack of information and awareness of contemporary society regarding Byzantine history and culture and...
