Architecture 4.0: A New Manifestation of Contemporary Technology

Architecture, as an interdisciplinary field, has always been both a challenger and a utilizer of cutting edge technologies of its era. As new materials and construction technologies are introduced, architecture embraces them by inspecting both the potentials and the reflections of these technologies into architectonics such as materiality, form, and detailing. Additive manufacturing, which offers enormous flexibility, customization and/or personalization, speed of construction and low cost, challenges architecture to revisit the idea of detailing, and materiality of the new tectonics for a possible new means of standardization. Within the scope of this study, additive manufacturing technology in building construction is inspected through contemporary applications, potentials and future study areas for fully integration in architecture.

Sustainability as an Educational Concern: A Study on Industrial Design Curricula
Turhan, Senem (null; 2009-04-09)
With the emergence of sustainability, it became an important concern for curricula of industrial design education as for many other educational structures. Currently, lots of higher education institutions offer courses focusing on sustainability for various objectives. This study deals with the current situation of industrial design education in the world by means of sustainability as an educational concern. It starts with the examination of a variety of sustainable development definitions and continues wi...
Digital architecture as the extension of physical spaces : asymtote's New York Stock Exchange virtual reality environment
Ayoğlu, Halil; Yalınay, Şebnem; Department of Architecture (2005)
The aim of this thesis is to develop an understanding of digital architecture as an extension to the physical spaces. The thesis claims that Virtual Reality Environments (VREs) coexist, supplement, support and extend the physical environments. VREs enable the users to deal with manipulable, multi-dimensional, interactive digital environment. Asymptote2s New York Stock Exchange Three-Dimensional Trading Floor (NYSE 3DTF) VRE is a significant example to analyze digital architecture in this perspective. The 3D...
Computer Simulation as an Integral Part of Digital Design Education in Architecture The Modulator
Sorguç, Arzu; Cakici, Fatma Zehra (2011-09-24)
It has been more than a decade that the first discussions on the integration of computational technologies into architectural education, especially into the design studios have been started. Since then, the use of CAD from drafting to complex solid modeling and manufacturing in design studios has been mostly achieved. Yet, persisting on the discussions within the same context, mostly focusing on the studio education and CAD/CAM rather than "CAAD" avoids inquiring other potentials of them as being a learning...
The dialogue of type and model in architecture
Tunçbaş, Adil; Cengizkan, Ali; Department of Architecture (2006)
The idea of type has always been a crucial factor in the field of architecture. Not only it works as a dominator in the design process of architecture but also it supplies the certain ways through which architecture communicates with the observer. In order to understand the interaction between architecture and the observer the idea of type appears as a critical point. This study will be an attempt to understand the dialogue of type and model in architecture. Throughout the research Anthony Vidler’s article ...
Architecture as a discursive discipline: inflatable spaces of radical avant-gardes
Eryılmaz, Emine Burcu; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2019)
This thesis is an inquiry into the inflatable architecture of avant-garde architects, produced from the late 1960s to the early 1970s. Positioning this strand at the transformation of architectural discourse, it starts with the assumption that the period between the late 1960s and the early 1970s marked a paradigm shift in architecture, catalyzed by the technological developments and; social, political and cultural upheavals during this period. This shift represents a break from the conventional definitions...
