A Conceptual model proposal of dynamic architecture with dynamic internal walls as interaction interface

Gür, Elif Nadide
Dynamic Architecture first appeared in 20th century in the field of architecture and have been seen under various names over time such as Transformable Architecture, Responsive Architecture, Adaptive Architecture, Intelligent Architecture and so on. Each of them are specialized on their abilities of responsiveness, transformation and intelligence in accordance with the economic, functional and energy requirements. The reason why Dynamic Architecture is developing fast is that it the follows the latest improvements in the field of electronics, structural engineering and computational sciences. In the light of the latest developments, the aim of this thesis is to propose a conceptual model of an inclusive and advanced dynamic architectural space, which has dynamic internal walls as interaction interface to strengthen humanbuilding interactivity with intelligent behaviors. As the recent developments in artificial intelligence and structural engineering make advanced architectural environments possible, multi-agent dynamic systems can be used to control ambient intelligence of the space and deep learning algorithms can be used in interactive interface to communicate more interactively with users. With this proposal, a space can become more interactive by gaining the capabilities of dynamism and intelligent behavior, which can push the dynamic building term one step forward by improving human-building interactions and it can have its own characteristics using what it senses and learns. For this purpose, the positive aspects of dynamic architectural terms, construction of dynamic structures and composition of intelligent behaviors of the space are the matters of discussion in this thesis.


Complexity management and mutability in architectural form conception: form-blindness and softform
Kızılcan, Egemen Berker; Mennan, Zeynep; Department of Architecture (2015)
Expressions in architecture, as modes of conveying information, have the power to shape perception and thinking, as well as architectural production. Architectural conception is today induced by custom information models with the advent of technologies and methodologies associated with the computational paradigm and therefore are capable of inhabiting complex orders that arise from a multiplicity of concerns. Architecture is no longer constituted by the fixity of a single instance of form, instead possibili...
An Ontological inquiry on potentials of criticality and conceptualization of program in architecture
Kızıl, Sinan Cem; Sargın, Güven Arif; Department of Architecture (2017)
The relation between architecture and social change is one of the key themes in historical discourse of architectural theory. The tradition of criticality has been consolidated after enlightenment and it caused distrust towards norms of architecture. Even though this tradition of criticality eventually turns to its roots and criticises the ideals of enlightenment in postmodern discourses, it is clear that namely postmodern architectures still subjected to criticism similar to their modernist predecessors. I...
A study on tall buildings and aerodynamic modifications against wind excitation
Ilgın, H. Emre; Günel, Mehmet Halis; Department of Architecture (2006)
The purpose of this thesis is to create basic design guidance for tall buildings and their aerodynamic modifications as a resource for architects, engineers, developers, and students. It aims to make a contribution to and strengthen particularly the architect̕s understanding of tall building design, that requires a high level of interdisciplinary approach, by providing a broad overview of the أtall buildingؤ with its general concepts; to demonstrate the importance of human element as a critical component in...
A new approach for defining the conservation status of early Republican architecture, case study : primary school buildings in İzmir
Kul, Fatma Nurşen; Madran, Emre; Department of Architecture (2010)
International discussions on the conservation of the twentieth-century architectural heritage emphasize the diversity of the whole of the built environment of the entire century, rather than limiting consideration to canonic examples of the architectural historiography during the identification and assessment of the properties to be conserved. In contrast to this international holistic and inclusive approach, the approach to the identification and assessment of the properties in Turkey has in general been s...
The dialogue of type and model in architecture
Tunçbaş, Adil; Cengizkan, Ali; Department of Architecture (2006)
The idea of type has always been a crucial factor in the field of architecture. Not only it works as a dominator in the design process of architecture but also it supplies the certain ways through which architecture communicates with the observer. In order to understand the interaction between architecture and the observer the idea of type appears as a critical point. This study will be an attempt to understand the dialogue of type and model in architecture. Throughout the research Anthony Vidler’s article ...
