Urban complexity and connectivity : emergence of generative models in urban design
Ayaroğlu, Mert; Mennan, Zeynep; Department of Architecture (2007)
This thesis analyzes the changing design and planning strategies in the contemporary urban design area. The rapid improvements during the 20th century in complexity sciences and computer technologies have directly affected all the branches of design. In architecture, as in urban design, generative models, evolutionary design attitudes and computer based simulation tools have taken a significant role during the last few decades. In urban design, emerged in a period starting form the second half of the centur...

Decision-making processes related with the physical arrangements and the urban form affect the city's social structure at a certain extent. In return, social transformations most obviously take the stage on the public spaces of cities that are open-to-all spaces of urban culture and are the main reason why cities define spaces of freedom. Besides the direct relationship it establishes with the public spaces of the city, the public realm is an intangible concept shaped by how the urbanites develop their comm...
Urban coherence: a morphological definition
Çalışkan, Olgu (2017-10-01)
Despite being one of the most commonly used normative concepts in urban design, coherence still lacks a firm morphological definition. Without an explicit specification of its spatial attributes, coherence remains a vague and subjective notion of design implicitly referred to as one of the basic properties of good urban form. As a contribution to the link between urban design and morphology, this paper renders the normative concept objectively in terms of a set of quantifiable morphological indicators. Spat...
