Relief-spaces: trans-positions in display environments

Sarıca, Sezin
The aim of this study is to redefine the relationship between the exhibition space and the object on display. With the recognition that architecture of exhibition space has been a renowned problematic in the architectural discourse, this study specifically focuses on the spatial integrity of both the container, the exhibition space, and the content, the object on display. The inquiry is into the possibility of using the visual field of artistic production, “relief”, as a decoder, in order to be able to define a new way of seeing the visual field of exhibition space. Relief is reintroduced as a scaleless surface and space formation. Therefore, it becomes a seeing/reading tool that can magnify the environments superimposed in one immersive medium. Space and the surface are read together as a display environment. The aim is to look into the term and condition “expansion” that surface defines while creating a relief-space as a display space. Relief-space is defined as an architectural condition, which is conceptualized through a collocated textual ground of both architecture and art. The discussion questions both the conventional singularity of museum and galleries as “the” exhibition space and the conventional stability of architecture, which has been accepted only as the “container”.


Authenticity in house museums: a tool for the reinterpretation of architectural space
Uz, Melek Pınar; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2016)
This thesis is a critical inquiry into the term “authenticity” in the relationship between the architectural aspects of museum spaces and the display context. By reinterpreting the expanded definitions and conceptualizations in the fields of art, museology and preservation and conservation studies, authenticity in architecture refers to all the architectural qualities, forming the physical and spiritual constitution of an architectural product. The aim of this study, in this sense, is to reintroduce authent...
3D Extended Object Tracking Using Recursive Gaussian Processes
Kumru, Murat; Özkan, Emre (2018-07-10)
In this study, we consider the challenging task of tracking dynamic 3D objects with unknown shapes by using sparse point cloud measurements gathered from the surface of the objects. We propose a Gaussian process based algorithm that is capable of tracking the dynamic behavior of the object and learn its shape in 3D simultaneously. Our solution does not require any parametric model assumption for the unknown shape. The shape of the objects is learned online via a Gaussian process. The proposed method can joi...
Spatial control of a smart beam
Kircali, Omer Faruk; Yaman, Yavuz; Nalbantoglu, Volkan; Şahin, Melin; Karadal, Fatih Mutlu; Ulker, Fatma Demet (2008-08-01)
This study presents the design and implementation of a spatial H(infinity) controller for the active vibration control of a smart beam. The smart beam was modeled by assumed-modes method that results in a model including large number of resonant modes. The order of the model was reduced by direct model truncation and the model correction technique was applied to compensate the effect of the contribution of the out of range modes to the dynamics of the system. Additionally, spatial identification of the beam...
Reading architectural space through a staged event
Temizer, Seda; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2003)
This study is an inquiry into the architectural aspects of أstage spaceؤ, which is believed to be the materialization of visual relationships, with the claim that it is also the best illustration of the proposition that architectural discourse is affected by the changes in visual culture. The study is based on the assumption that changes in the conceptualization of architectural space have also been influenced from the shifts in the field of vision, which are the consequences of the changes in the social, p...
Exhibition-scapes from mise-en-scene to mise-en-cadre
Önertürk, Cemre; Serin, Ufuk; Department of Architecture (2020)
The aim of this study is to acknowledge the twofold condition of exhibition spaces regarding the measure of integration it holds with the moving visitor and reread the arising architectural experiences. The two distant relational dynamics exhibitions imply, which transpire with reference to the absence/presence of a moving visitor, have been a point of discussion in the architectural discourse, but they have only been recognized through the limited agenda of the “containing box”. Accordingly, understanding ...
