Spaces by People: An Urban Design Approach to Everyday Life
Cihanger Medeıros Rıbeıro, Duygu (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2018-6-28)
The creative and transformative interaction between people and urban space is one of the foremost features of history. Along this path, urban design and designers necessarily take the responsibility to anticipate preferable living environments for the general public. However, within an urban context that is initially shaped by making-by-designing processes, people (re)transform their living environments by altering the premeditated built environment. This interaction exhibits concrete yet subtle examples of...

Space organisation in urban block :interfaces among public, common and private spaces based on Conzen method in Bahçelievler
Songülen, Nazlı; Günay, Baykan; Department of City and Regional Planning (2012)
Space organisation of urban blocks is a significant topic of urban design field to achieve correlated urban parts that enhance the variety in urban spaces. However, the rapid urban transformation experienced in the Turkish cities resulted in the generation of similar urban blocks with the lack of spatial variety. Therefore, a re-evolution of space organisation concepts for urban blocks emerges as a design problem in order to cope with the defined problem. From this point of view, the interfaces among public...
Spaces of an escapist utopia: an inquiry into the Yeşil Yurt dream of Servet-i Fünun
Kurpınar, Gönenç; Zelef, Mustafa Haluk; Department of Architecture (2020-7)
Throughout the history, humankind has created many utopias and has used the utopian vision to build the physical environment, govern the social life or just escape from the existing reality. In order to elaborate discussions on utopias, this thesis is focused on Yeşil Yurt which was created in the late 19th century by literary and architectural tools that later turned into a single realized building. Discussing Yeşil Yurt’s interaction with architecture, literary spaces and utopianism, various archite...
Place Identity and Creative District Regeneration: The Case of 798 in Beijing and M50 in Shanghai Art Zones
Sepe, Marichela (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2018-1-19)
The history of a place constitutes - together with the development of suitable policies - an important element in determining the future of that part of the city and its renewal. At the same time, recognizing the value of place identity as a fundamental component of heritage and in implementing urban change serves as a reference point both in terms of society’s wishes and in safeguarding and constructing the sustainable urban image. Built heritage narratives facilitate the creation and enhancement of nation...
