Terminology Relating To ‘Buildings That Have Combined Functions’ In Anatolian Seljuk Architecture

İpekoğlu, Başak
This research aims to assess the validity of a classification of architectural edifices, based on a new terminology developed for groups of buildings from the Anatolian Seljuk period. These groups of buildings are often combinations of mosques, 'turbe's, 'medrese's and 'darüşşifa's which have distinct design characteristics of the Seljuk period of Anatolia, and which seem to have evolved later into the Ottoman period. In some of these groups of buildings in this period, either two or three different functions are integrated into a single building, or these different functions are solved in several independent buildings which are integrally related. I am inclined to call this group as 'buildings that have combined functions', to differentiate them from others where such combinations are not observed. In some of the buildings covered in this research, like 'medrese-mescid-türbe' combinations, the relationship may seem to be a spontaneous one, but in others like 'mosquedarüşşifa' or 'medrese-darüşşifa-türbe' combinations the relationship between the components appears to be the logical result of a well studied design stage.


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...

Kavas, Kemal Reha; Erzen, Jale Adile; Department of History of Architecture (2009)
This thesis formulates a conceptual framework to account for the rural architectural traditions. The proposal is presented by referring to Ürünlü, a Mediterranean highland settlement in Southwestern Turkey. The thesis' basic assumption is the environmental coherence of the traditional rural culture. Environmental aesthetics provides the conceptual basis through which architectural elements of the environmental coherence are investigated. Environmental aesthetics enhances the inclusive conceptions of "enviro...
An analysis of Architect Sinan's late period mosques
Katipoğlu, Ceren; Erzen, Jale Adile; Department of History of Architecture (2007)
This thesis focuses on the late period mosques of architect Sinan in terms of their structural systems, the relation with their environment, and the identities of their patrons. The links amongst the role of the patron, his or her status in the state, materials used in the mosques, location choice and the spatial distribution of the mosques are researched on the bases of these six late period mosques of Sinan. In this perspective, the social background of the Ottoman Empire in the sixteenth century is the f...
Tracking continuities between the modern and vernacular architecture: courtyard in the west mediterranean architecture as a case study
Arıkan, Fuat Deniz; Güzer, Celal Abdi; Balamir, Aydan; Department of Architecture (2015)
The main aim of this thesis is to search for the possible continuities of a particular spatial organization in the West Mediterranean culture, where the presence of modern and vernacular architecture will be shown to be affecting and integrating into each other. In the first chapter, the structure of the thesis is built upon the term Mediterraneanism. The general background of the region is also given with significant references to two publications; Fernand Braudel’s The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean ...
