STRATEGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE TALL BUILDINGS IN HISTORICAL URBAN ENVIRONMENT

2017-10-23
As a result of physical, social and economic needs, the demand for tall buildings is increasing worldwide. Due to their great size and large impacts on the historical urban environment, tall buildings, through careful design and urban integration, have the potential to improve the quality around them while adding a new value of design with preserving the existing urban heritage. Also, depending on their large area of influence, design considerations regarding sustainability and environmental integration of tall buildings need to be handled with more care than with other conventional buildings to provide the most positive impact on the existing built environment. Moreover, tall buildings can create both negative and positive impacts on the urban environment both physically and socially; they should be designed with a consideration on basic parameters that satisfy both the structural requirements and ideally the requirements of the sustainable built environment. The harmony between a tall building and its environment is the most important point which should be handled together. Researches made in the field of tall buildings and their sustainable capabilities determine important design issues in different levels from urban to architectural scale. Location, site organization, transportation, urban skyline, material selection and façade design, entrance floor design, vertical design and the urban microclimate may be listed as of the fundamental concepts that should be taken into consideration in order to define the boundaries and intersection points of a tall building with the existing urban context. Thus, the most important and robust aim of a tall building design should be; minimizing the damage on existing built environment and historical urban heritage while expanding the usable landscape which is provided by its physical footprint on the site. An observation platform is introduced for this study the main aim is to compare in order to compare tall buildings with each other and reveal out their urban environmental impacts. Finding more relevant key sustainability concepts may further help to develop this method for observing and understanding these impacts. By developing this observational platform, it may be possible to provide a universal and whole concept design tool for buildings and their surrounding nature for further studies.

An inquiry into different urban transformation models in the context of rent and property transfer: the case of Ankara-Mamak district
Yılmaz, Mahir; Ersoy, Melih; Department of Urban Policy Planning and Local Governments (2011)
The transformation of urban space is determined by the social and economic relations in every mode of production. Under the condition of capitalist accumulation, the transformation of squatter areas is a significant debate. Therefore, the transformation of squatter areas should be analyzed in respect to the rent and the rent distribution by considering structure and agency relationship. In order to understand the rent distribution, political interest groups and capitalist power holders should be scrutinized...
A Sustainable approach to urban regeneration process by SWOT analysis
Cin, Mehmet Melih (2016-01-01)
Inner city deprived areas are valuable lands which have economical and social problems in addition to its physical conditions. Therefore, Turkey introduced interventions to these urban areas in order to improve the physical, social and economical conditions. However, interventions cause more problems rather than solving the existent ones such as; gentrifications, unemployment of inhabitant, loss of social and urban tissue. Problems consist of undetermined conditions of areas before or during implementation ...
Performance based seismic design of reinforced concrete tall buildings
Budak, Erhan; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (null; 2017-01-13)
The need for tall buildings are steadily increasing all over the world, in parallel to the need for new living spaces in large cities. Improvements in technological equipment, material science and analysis methods have opened opportunities to construct new life areas by rising along the vertical direction instead of horizontal. Unlike regular buildings, tall buildings are peculiar due to their specific architectural properties and building configurations. On the other hand, most of these buildings are locat...
