Tracing literary architecture: spatial in-betweenness in Virginia Woolf’s between the acts (1941)

Özcan, Seçil
This thesis aims to analyze Virginia Woolf’s final novel Between the Acts, published posthumously in 1941, by tracing its literary representation of architecture. Accordingly, it follows the spatial movement in the novel by recreating in-between spaces as private/ public, indoor/ outdoor, and associated with femininity/ masculinity. While doing this, it discusses the novel in relation to the issue of domesticity and within the context of country houses during the interwar years, corresponding to the so-called “romantic modern” period in Britain.

Authentication of space: the photograph as a raw material for architectural production
Koca, Aslı; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2009)
This thesis is a critical reconsideration of the relationship of architectural production with its unique mode of representation: “photography.” Photography has been interpreted essentially as a technique and a visual medium to document architecture in general. The “photograph,” in this sense, is regarded as a representational form of documentation and an artistic and material expression of architecture. Besides this conventional value, this study argues that photography not only provides a new medium for t...
