Başkent Ankara ve Jansen

Yavuz, Fehmi
Ankara was established as the capital of Turkey on Oct.13, 1923. The decision to move the capital to central Anatolia was the result of economic, social and cultural factors in addition to factors like security and defense. Since Istanbul served not only as the political but the cultural capital for more than 1500 years to Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, the decision for this move was criticized by political circles for a long periodProf. H.Jansen won the competition for the Master Plan of Ankara in 1927; the final version was approved by the Cabinet in 1932. Jansen was İn charge of the implementation of the Master Plan until 1938. His job was then ended since he was against land speculation and fell into conflict with certain interest groups. Hence, the efforts to improve the capital by means of an organized planning process proved to be unsuccessful. It is necessary to promote legal reorganizations based on the principle that land is a natural resource, while paying due attention to the specific issues of urbanization and housing problem. The population of Ankara has rapidly increased since 1923.Therefore, the positive and negative effects of public enterprises need to be reconsidered to support an organized settlement process. The reasons for migration into urban areas also need to be taken into account while seeking solutions for demographic problems of larger urban centers.

Pınarevli, Mehmet; Öğüt, Nergis Rana; Department of Architecture (2005)
Ankara, being the capital, has been the most important city for the New Modern Turkish State on its way of establishing the modernity project of Turkey. The development of the urban planning projects proceeded on the basis of this aimed concept of the new society, carrying the privilege of being the symbol of the modern republic, prosperity and wealth. Keçiören is one of the main districts of Ankara. The main aim of this study is to analyze and describe the ideological departure of Keçiören from the concept...
Rockfall Hazard Assessment Around Ankara Citadel (Turkey) Using Rockfall Analyses and Hazard Rating System
San, Nyein Ei; Topal, Tamer; AKIN, MÜGE (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-08-01)
Ankara Citadel which is one of the important cultural heritages in Turkey settles in the oldest part of Ankara. Rockfall event has occurred around the Citadel located on a steep hill where andesite is exposed. The rockfall problem causes a great risk to the surrounding area where road, school, floral shops, car parking. Therefore, the major aim of this research is to reveal the rockfall risk around the castle. The rockfall problems around the Ankara Citadel may be linked with weathering, freezing-thawing, e...
Regime Change in Contemporary Turkey: Politics, Rights, Mimesis
Polat, Necati (Edinburgh University Press , 2016-08-01)
Turkey has undergone a series of upheavals in its political regime from the mid-19th century. This book details the most recent change, locating it in its broader historical setting. Beginning with the Justice and Development Party’s rule from late 2002, supported by a broad informal coalition that included liberals, the book shows how the former Islamists gradually acquired full power between 2007 and 2011. It then describes the subsequent phase, looking at politics and rights under the amorphous new order.
Neotethyan ophiolitic rocks of the Anatolides of NW Turkey and comparison with Tauride ophiolites
Onen, AP (2003-11-01)
The Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan zone in Turkey is part of the Anatolide belt. In NW Anatolia, near Kutahya, the ophiolitic rocks within the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan suture zone have a tholeiitic character and oceanic back-arc chemistry. Amphibolites form a metamorphic sole to part of the ophiolite in the Kutahya region and yield an Ar-40/Ar-39 age of 93 +/- 2 Ma, interpreted to record high-grade metamorphism and intraoceanic thrusting of pre-existing ocean crust. Gabbros and dykes yield Ar-40/Ar-39 ages of 94 +/- 13...

It is a well-known fact that Turkey is on a seismically active region. In order to kick-off structural dynamics research in TOBB Economy and Technology University which would focus on improving earthquake response of structures, an experimental earthquake simulation setup and a three floor building model is created as a senior year graduation project. There were two main parts of the study; the first part is the design and integration of components of an earthquake simulation system. The second part is the ...
