title Envisioning our First-Principles Predecessors: Legacies of Climatization in Ancient Anatolian Structures
source ENVISIONING ARCHITECTURE: IMAGE, PERCEPTION AND COMMUNICATION OF HERITAGE [ISBN 978-83-7283-681-6],Lodz University of Technology, 23-26 September 2015, pp.152-164
summary The homogenization of our current building culture makes vernacular structures around the world extremely vulnerable to desuetude and calls to question how new forms of representation can highlight alternative facets of our built heritage. This paper explores the changing nature of heritage interpretation and offers new methods in representing vernacular structures, highlighting their exquisite atmospheric disposition through the use of state-of-the-art computer simulation programs. The ancient Anatolian region and its vast inventory of exemplary antiquities serves as the site of investigation, encompassing an area that stretches from the western Aegean coastline to the south eastern plain. The results of this study indicate that the intensified development density of these building complexes produce unique models of collective living, establishing a rich inventory of intermediary spatial types that inflect the daily and seasonal variations of the temperate Anatolian climate.
