Boğaziçi’nde 18. Yüzyıldan Kalma Bir İstanbul Evinin Durumu Hakkında Sanat Tarihi Bağlamında Yeni Değerlendirmeler

Arslan, Hidayet
Located at Bebek Quarter, Yogurtcu Zulfu Street, map section 67, city block 529 and land plot 15, the Kavafyan Mansion, one of the pioneering buildings of the 18th century Bosphorus inner-side architectural culture, is the oldest and the only surviving example of traditional Turkish house in Istanbul. In addition to the traditional elements of the venue setup, it is also highly significant in terms of featuring the first examples of mural paintings with landscape that emerged alongside Westernization begun with Sultan Ahmed III. Furthermore, heretofore unrealized 18th Century Dutch Tiles found in various places, of which the similar ones are found at the Topkapi Palace Harem Chambers, increase the significance of the building. This mansion is invaluable; not only in terms of art and architectural history; but also is in terms of Turkish cultural history. This building, in spite of its registration as "a cultural asset that is required to be preserved as is" in 1973 and classification "as a historical artifact at the first group" in 1998 by the Cultural and Natural Heritage Protection Board, today faces the threats of extinction due to the certain legal issues. This study focuses on extensive evaluation regarding all the features additional to the new findings of Kavafyan Mansion based on its current status in 2013 in the context of art history.


Assessment of deterioration and collapse mechanisms of dolomitic limestone at Hasankeyf Antique City before and after reservoir impounding (Turkey)
Topal, Tamer (2016-01-01)
The Hasankeyf Antique City located in southeastern Anatolia (Turkey) includes several historical heritages and man-made caves. It is mainly located in dolomitic limestone. The city will be partly under water after reservoir impounding of the Ilisu dam, and the limestone will be subjected to cyclic processes such as wetting-drying and freezing-thawing. Although a new town is formed and part of the city is transported to a nearby area, this cannot be done for many existing historical and cultural values at th...
Reconstructing Authenticity The Erimtan Archaeology and Arts Museum in the Ankara Citadel
Savaş Sargın, Ayşen (null; 2015-10-09)
Three modest houses that were transformed into Erimtan Museum at the Citadel of Ankara were dated to the late seventeenth century and found in a state of demolition due to neglect over the years. The major goal of the architectural interventions was the preservation of the historical and material qualities of the existing houses and the surrounding historical fabric. If the old houses were conceived as ‘authentic’, their reconstructed version was based on a body of information about the functional layout an...

Asutay Effenberger, Neslihan (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2006)
The Alaeddin Mosque, which is located on a hill in the middle of modern Konya, is one of the most problematical monuments of the Seljuk Anatolia. It has suffered from several restorations and almost lost of its original substance. Its irregular prayer hall shows the following parts (from east to west): a hypostyle hall, a central unit with a mihrap cupola and a western wing. An U-shaped courtyard, where two kümbets are situated, is positioned in the north side of the prayer hall. In addition, some wall frag...
Bi̇r Tasarımın İzi̇nde: Yeni̇ Bulgular Işığında Raimondo d’Aronco’nun İlk İstanbul Projesi̇ Dersaadet Zi̇raat ve Sanayi̇ Sergi̇-i̇ Umumi̇si̇
Adıgüzel, Hatice (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2019-9-25)
Osmanlı sergicilik tarihi içinde ikinci olma umuduyla yolan çıkan, ancak 1894 yılında gerçekleşen büyük İstanbul depremi nedeniyle iptal edilen Dersaadet Ziraat ve Sanayi Sergi-i Umumisi konusuna yoğunlaşan, mimarlık ve sanat tarihi bağlamında sınırlı sayıda araştırma vardır. 1893 yılında hazırlıkları yapılan sergi, Osmanlı mimarisine Raimondo D’Aronco gibi bir mimarı kazandırmasının ötesinde, Batı’nın uluslararası sergilerini model alan yaklaşımıyla, II. Abdülhamid döneminin ekonomik ve sosyal hayatını can...
Displaying abroad: Architecture and town planning exhibitions of Britain in Turkey in the mid-1940s
Altan, Tomris Elvan (2014-03-01)
This paper focuses on two exhibitions of architecture and town planning held by Britain in Turkey in the mid-1940s. The use of these exhibitions for propaganda purposes, as well as their reception in the highly politicized context of World War II, requires the study to emphasize the political as well as the professional perspective of the contemporary architectural context. Analyzing why and how these exhibitions were held, and what they displayed as representative of British architecture and town planning,...
