Sustainability of urban regeneration in Turkey: Assessing the performance of the North Ankara Urban Regeneration Project
Korkmaz, Cansu; Balaban, Osman (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
The increasing environmental footprints of cities necessitated the integration sustainability principles into urban planning and development frameworks. The growing attention on urban sustainability also influenced the policy and the practice of urban regeneration. The quest for new methods for regenerating existing urban quarters in sustainable manners resulted in the concept of sustainable urban regeneration. The concept aims to develop urban regeneration projects in line with the three key pillars of sus...
Approaches to Climate Change in Spatial Planning and Design: International and Turkish Experiences
Gedikli, Bahar (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2018-01-01)
Climate change falls into theoretical and practical concerns of many disciplines ranging from natural to social sciences, engineering, urban planning, architecture and administrative sciences. Spatial planning can be an effective tool for climate mitigation and adaptation. Obviously, with regard to its spatial scale, the scope, content and form of the plan would vary in handling the phenomenon. For instance, while a strategic spatial plan would define a larger framework for climate sensitive action at regio...
Environmental aesthetics of the rural architectural tradition in the Mediterranean highlander settlement: the case study of Ürünlü
Kavas, Kemal Reha; Erzen, Jale Adile; Department of History of Architecture (2009)
This thesis formulates a conceptual framework to account for the rural architectural traditions. The proposal is presented by referring to Ürünlü, a Mediterranean highland settlement in Southwestern Turkey. The thesis' basic assumption is the environmental coherence of the traditional rural culture. Environmental aesthetics provides the conceptual basis through which architectural elements of the environmental coherence are investigated. Environmental aesthetics enhances the inclusive conceptions of "enviro...
Exhibitions as the medium of architectural reproduction "modern architecture: international exhibition"
Tabibi, Baharak; Gür, Berin Fatma; Department of Architecture (2005)
This thesis studies the influential role of architectural exhibitions in shaping and directing architectural discourses. The study accepts architectural exhibitions and associated publications as the أcritical actؤ of architecture, in which (the work of) architecture is interpreted, reproduced and publicized. The main focus of this thesis is أModern Architecture: International Exhibition,ؤ held in 1932 at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). This particular exhibition is a significant historical event, which of...
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...
