While making Istanbul a global city, what has happened in the heritage geographies?



How To Shape Up Conservation-Led Regeneration Initiatives Regarding Community Needs?
Akkar Ercan, Zübeyde Müge (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2010-01-01)
1990’ların sonlarından itibaren kentsel koruma ve canlandırma konularındaki tartışmalar, toplumsal ve topluluk odaklı konulara kaymaya başlamasına rağmen, kentsel koruma ve canlandırma projelerinin ne kadar topluluk ihtiyaçlarına, değerlerine ve önceliklerine göre şekillendirildiği araştırılması gereken önemli bir soru olarak karşımıza çıkmaktadır. Bu makale, 1980’lerin başından günümüze bir taraftan küresel ve uluslararası sermayenin odağı haline gelen, diğer taraftan yoksulluk, toplumsal dışlanma, kutupla...
Challenges and conflicts in achieving sustainable communities in historic neighbourhoods of Istanbul
Akkar Ercan, Zübeyde Müge (2011-04-01)
Although urban regeneration has been widely seen as a panacea to resolve the multi-faceted problems of cities over the last two decades, a broad section of literature suggests the need for questioning the impacts of urban regeneration projects as an integral part of neo-liberal policies. In the context of Turkey, by focusing on Istanbul, this article aims to investigate the success of the regeneration initiatives in achieving sustainable communities in deprived historic housing neighbourhoods. After definin...
Intervening with landscape: a tool for urban conservation the case of Yahşibey, Bursa /
Arslan Sönmez, Gökçe; Bilgin Altınöz, Ayşe Güliz; Baş Bütüner, Funda; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2016)
Historic urban sites are complex heritage places with various tangible and intangible values. Due to the ongoing life, they are subject to continuous change, which can lead to partial or total loss of their heritage values. Hence, urban conservation aims at developing responses to the changes in historic urban sites, while sustaining their tangible and intangible values. As for all the interventions in heritage places, urban conservation interventions should follow the main principles of 'reversibility', 'r...
Adopting sustainability assessment criteria to guide urban regeneraton projects: two case studies in Ankara
Seyhan, Zeynep.; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Architecture (2019)
Increasing awareness of climate change, loss of biodiversity and increase in environmental pollution due to the current trends of consumption in the urban areas have brought about a myriad of schemas to guide environmentally friendly urban developments. These schemes or Neighborhood Sustainability Assessment Tools (NSA Tools) provide a convenient way to establish healthier and sustainable cities. Meanwhile, Turkey is going through a rapid urban transformation process that is being questioned with respect to...
Modern mathematical methods in modeling and dynamics of regulatory systems of gene-environment networks
Defterli, Özlem; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Department of Mathematics (2011)
Inferring and anticipation of genetic networks based on experimental data and environmental measurements is a challenging research problem of mathematical modeling. In this thesis, we discuss gene-environment network models whose dynamics are represented by a class of time-continuous systems of ordinary differential equations containing unknown parameters to be optimized. Accordingly, time-discrete version of that model class is studied and improved by using different numerical methods. In this aspect, 3rd-...
