Re-thinking the production of urban built environments in the face of climate change



Re-constructing the political and educational contexts of the METU Project
Yorgancıoğlu, Derya; Aközer, Emel; İmamoğlu, Vacit; Department of Architecture (2010)
This dissertation focuses on the roles played by the United Nations experts Charles Abrams and G. Holmes Perkins in the foundation of METU Faculty of Architecture. It aims to highlight the ideas and ideals that informed Abrams’s and Perkins’s METU projects, and to delineate an integrative and multifaceted picture of their political and educational contexts. This picture may serve as a basis for future researches on the institutional and educational histories of METU Faculty of Architecture. It may also help...

Re-thinking the limits of architecture through the avant-garde formations during the 1960s : projections and receptions in the context of Turkey
Savaşır, Gökçeçiçek; Cengizkan, Ali; Department of Architecture (2008)
An inquiry into the voyage of avant-garde within the domains of art and architecture makes it evident that avant-garde is ambiguous in meaning as a word, a term, a phenomenon and a concept. This study aims to decipher avant-garde and to offer a map for its conceptualization in architecture. Taken not as a monolithic statement but as a unitary concept incorporating a number of subjects and formations for granted, in this study, architectural avant-garde is conceptualized as diverse expressions of activated e...
Re-reading urbanization experience of istanbul: through changing residential mobility behaviour of households
Kamacı, Ebru; Işık, Oğuz; Department of City and Regional Planning (2012)
In 2000 more than one fifth of Istanbul’s population lived in a different place than their place of residence five years ago. If we consider that the 2000 population of Istanbul was around some 9.2 million, this figure means that nearly 2 million people were not living in 2000 where they used to live in 1995. Of these two million mobiles, more than half (11.5% of total) were intra-urban movers who moved from one district to another in Istanbul in the same period. Changing the place of residence can be seen ...
Re-problematizing the contextualism-autonomy debate in architecture within the formal logic computational operations
Okten, Deniz; Mennan, Zeynep; Department of Architecture (2007)
Technological innovations in the field of information and communication have transformed the nature of the spatial realm. The spatial realm has been engaged with the virtual realm, where a new approach has been mandatory for a possible and productive interrelation between the two. On the other hand, new technologies have affected architectural drafting, representation, construction and most significantly architectural design to generate remarkable conveniences and unnoticed interfaces for architects. New te...
