A Study on reusing Bouleuterion of Teos /

Çalışkan, Merve
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. For this reason, starting with a generic research on ‘reusing’ of historic buildings, the research on the utilization of ancient places of performance is made including international documents and projects where the ATHENA project – Ancient theaters enhancements for new actualities is considered as a reference for collecting data on Bouleuterion and Teos Archaeological Site. The final target is constituted as criteria and proposal for reusing Bouleuterion within the frame of sustaining the balance between the conservation of the building and public needs.
