Principles and proposals for conservation and adaptive reuse of traditional depot buildings in Ayvalık

Özahi, Aslı
For a district like Ayvalık, which has a very strong industrial history, depot buildings are located within the historic commercial area and they are the heritage of the production process in the memories of inhabitants. This thesis offers a flexible modular design solution for the interiors of depot buildings and conserves them without intervening in historic building structures. With this approach, it is aimed to use the buildings as a shell and utilize them in a functional manner with reversible design strategies. The proposal will be developed according to the obtained parameters, from field surveys that were carried out for eight different depot buildings and modular design principles with respect to reversible design ideas.

Therefore, industrial heritage places have a very complex nature, due to their interrelation with different aspects in different periods. Besides, each geography has its specificities related to their cont...
Integration of immoveable cultural heritage to contemporary urban areas: the case of Ankara Castle
Kalpaklı, Ali Sinan; Büyükcivelek, Ahmet Burak; Department of City and Regional Planning (2019)
Cultural heritage buildings and sites are reminiscent of the layers of culture, history and the settlements that have existed in the past. These historic layers are significant as they give us information about our past and guide us to our future, as we coexist with these layers of heritage. Contemporary cities are changing with globalization and rapid urbanization; consequently these cultural heritage areas are being neglected, and losing their existence in everyday life. As cities shift to individualism a...
