Hesaplamalı Modeller Aracılığıyla Mimari ve Doğal Biçim Türetim İlkelerini İlişkilendirmek

Erdogan, Elif
Sorguç, Arzu
The contemporary approach towards architecture is an outcome of cross-fertilization of ideas between computation and biology. Computation, as an interface, instructs analyzing, understanding and reinterpreting the informal structure of natural organizations (such as system, information flow, and process through time) for artificial form generation. Consequently, with the computational theory we are going through a 'rethinking about our environment and restructuring its systems' epoch where processes, relations, and dependencies are major concern for reconsidering and comprehending our environment. This paper will consider computation as transcoding and nature as a model that present possibilities for extracting knowledge from existing facts and its reinterpretation and application in built environment. Accordingly, through this search for a revised/remodeled architecture, which is defined by and applied through computational mediums, natural form generation turns into a major lead to configure the information flow, and to understand complexity of dynamic systems.


On the concept of "field" in architectural theory and practice
Kuzlu, Emre; Aközer, Emel; Department of Architecture (2004)
This study aims at explaining the significance of the أfieldؤ concept in contemporary architecture and urbanism, in reference to the technical definitions of the term in different disciplines. In this context, it investigates the concepts of أfieldؤ in physics, psychology, art theory and criticism. It highlights the reinterpretation of the أfieldؤ concept in physics by eminent Gestalt psychologists, and its consequences for architecture and urbanism. Starting from the definitions of the concept of أfieldؤ b...
Exploring the potential of mat-building for the creation of universally designed environments
Eren, Yasemin; Aközer, Emel; Department of Architecture (2004)
The goal of this study is to reread the strategies of formal organization in architecture, which are called أmat-buildingؤ and أmat-urbanismؤ, exploring their potential to contribute to the creation of universally designed built environments in the 21st century. The idea of mat-building was first delineated by Alison Smithson in 1974, in her article أHow to Recognize and Read Mat-Building,ؤ by means of its traditional and modern examples. The concept of universal design was first used in 1970̕s and reinterp...
Actualization of the virtual: new consideration of space and time in architecture
Küçükbaşlar, Burcu; Yalınay Çinici, Şebnem; Department of Architecture (2006)
This thesis explores the interaction between virtual and actual realms in architecture through digital design process and developing environment qualities thereby. The focus will be on the projects that are designed in digital medium to be generated in physical environment. By examining the design attitude of selected four projects in this context, this thesis claims that the two realms of virtual and actual are interdependent. The framework of the study is based on Gilles Deleuze̕s definitions of أactualiz...
Digital architecture as the extension of physical spaces : asymtote's New York Stock Exchange virtual reality environment
Ayoğlu, Halil; Yalınay, Şebnem; Department of Architecture (2005)
The aim of this thesis is to develop an understanding of digital architecture as an extension to the physical spaces. The thesis claims that Virtual Reality Environments (VREs) coexist, supplement, support and extend the physical environments. VREs enable the users to deal with manipulable, multi-dimensional, interactive digital environment. Asymptote2s New York Stock Exchange Three-Dimensional Trading Floor (NYSE 3DTF) VRE is a significant example to analyze digital architecture in this perspective. The 3D...
Diagrammatic potency of the "nine square grid" in architectural design
Kalfazade, Nihat; Gür, Berin Fatma; Department of Architecture (2004)
The aim of this thesis is to search for the diagrammatic potency of the أnine square gridؤ (9SG) in architectural design. The thesis refers to the diagram as a tool for bringing order to the essential elements of architecture (i.e. program, structure and context). It highlights the potential relationships among these elements. In this study, the 9SG is approached as a diagram that has the potential to generate different spatial relations. The thesis investigates different uses of the 9SG in reference to the...
