Rethinking digital industrial design: a mandate for virtual workshops and intelligent environments
Şener Pedgley, Bahar (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
In an era of major technological strides in computer interaction, it is a disappointment industrial designers continue to report that current CAD packages are too rooted in engineering design to be effective in supporting their own creative practices. This paper examines the nature of their dissatisfaction and proposes solutions. A comprehensive observational study of industrial designers' existing CAD and physical modelling activities is reported, from which an evidence base for the specification of improv...
Reconsideration of genius loci: re-generative design approach in environmentally sensitive architecture
Emerce, Melike; Erkılıç, Mualla; Department of Architecture (2015)
Green building rating systems, such as LEED and BREEAM, were initially developed for assessing the performance of the building designs as end-products. With the passage of time, they have gained such significance that they started to lead the green design practice. However, the inappropriate adaptation of these international rating tools as design guides has resulted in insensitivity towards context, disregard of regional and cultural variations since they have certain limitations preventing them to guide t...

Changing principles of international water law in Central Asia: Addressing the crisis, from customary practice to virtual water footprints
Arynova, Aigul; Kahveci Özgür, Hayriye; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2019-6)
Laws regulating transboundary water allocation in Central Asia discriminate water interests of upperstream states and contribute to the excessive water use by downstream states. The present research studies water conflict in Central Asia emphasizing the changing impacts of international water law and its cardinal principle, the equitable and reasonable utilization (ERU). A review of the main water regime which had developed in Central Asia including agreements signed following the USSR’s collapse is conduct...
Reconstructing Probabilistic Realism: Re-enacting Syntactical Structures
Davoody Benı, Majıd (2020-06-01)
Probabilistic realism and syntactical positivism were two among outdated theories that Feigl criticised on account of their semantical poverty. In this paper, I argue that a refined version of probabilistic realism, which relies on what Feigl specified as the pragmatic description of the symbolic behaviour of scientists' estimations and foresight, is defendable. This version of statistical realism does not need to make the plausibility of realist thesis dependent on the conventional acceptance of a construc...
