Cultural Heritage On The Road: The Caravanserais Of Turkey

July 21, 2014

workshop, 18-22 October 2014crvn
AGU School of Architecture, Kayseri

first call

Spreading throughout the Islamic world on a vast geographic and temporal scale, wayside caravanserais have faithfully sheltered travellers and traders for many

centuries. The impressive diffusion of this institution and its characteristics clearly shows that caravanserais fulfilled a key role in society, in relation both to the physical act of travelling and to the notion of travel as the expression of cultural values.

As regards to caravanserais, Turkey can claim one of the richest heritages all over the world. Several caravanserais were founded in Turkey from the beginning of Seljuk period until the end of the Ottoman Empire, and hundreds of them are still preserved today.

The workshop will consider road caravanserais both from an architectural and historical – archaeological point of view. In fact, to achieve a comprehensive sense of caravanserais as cultural heritage, it is paramount to explore issues of conservation and restoration in deep connection with the analysis of the cultural and historical context these edifices were built in.

The main aim of the workshop is to promote new dialogue and create an inspiring framework for scholars, students and professional interested in caravanserais and the issues related to their preservation and reuse. This workshop will represent a fundamental assessment for the research on caravanserais and it also aspires at providing directions and ideas for future research as well as for a comprehensive and sustainable management of the cultural heritage represented by caravanserais.

 

General Schedule

The workshop is intended to last five days. We envision having seminar lectures, field-trips, and team project work. The seminar lectures will include topics dealing with the history and archaeology of the caravanserais as well as issues related to the restoration and conservation and reuse of the buildings. A lecture on the use of 3D modelling for cultural heritage is also scheduled. A full day will be spent on a field-trip to a caravanserai near Kayseri. The field-trip is intended to provide first-hand information and data for further discussion on the issues of restoration and conservation.

The workshop is intended both to outline the importance of the cultural and historical context for the architectural project of restoration and to provide students with direct experience on real cases as well as debates and discussions with experienced professionals. The workshop is intended mainly for graduate students. Researchers and professionals are also welcomed. The workshop will be held in English.

 

Attendance is free but participants must register in advance, as places are limited.  To register to the workshop, please send an e-mail including a brief curriculum to the following address caravanserais@agu.edu.tr before 15 September 2014. Late registrations will not be considered and places are limited (25 students max.) Some accommodation and/or travel scholarship could be available in order to ease students’ participation to the workshop.

Metropol(ötesin)de Mimarlık Eğitimi; AGÜ Mimarlık Bölümü Deneyimi

April 14, 2014

Kuruluş hedeflerinden, öğrenci alım süreçlerine ve eğitim yaklaşımına AGÜ Mimarlık Bölümü, başka bir arayışın olasılıkları üzerine kendini byg-drg-00001temellendirmektedir. Gün geçtikçe popülerliği artan bir meslek alanı olarak algılanmasından dolayı, her yıl sayısı hızla artan mimarlık bölümleri arasında yer almak yerine, sürece yeni bir bakış getirerek rekabeti güçlendiren bir odak noktası olmak hedeflenmektedir.

Bölüm, konumlandığı coğrafya ve mekansal-sosyal her tür bileşenini, doğrudan eğitim sürecine dahil etmektedir. Yirminci yüzyıl mimarlığının tartışılmaz ikonlarından biri olan Sümerbank Kayseri Bez Fabrikası gibi bir yerleşke içinde başlayan mimarlık eğitiminin, mekanın imgesel ve deneyimsel niteliklerinden dolayı yeni arayışları sürüklemesi kaçınılmazdır. Anadolu’nun mekansal ve kültürel zenginliği, sürecin farklı aşamalarında başrolde olacaktır. Uluslararası işbirlikleri ile farklı coğrafya ve kültürler de sürece dahil edilecektir.  Çeşitliğinin örgütlenmesi, mimarlık ortamının en önemli değeri, eleştirel düşünme pratiğini renklendirmektedir. AGÜ Mimarlık bu bakışla, mimarlık eğitiminin merkezinde yer alan tasarım eylemi ve süreçlerinde mekanı; biçimi, bileşenini, kurgusunu, kurulumunu ve en önemlisi onunla yaşayanı başka bakışlarla sorgulamayı amaç edinmiştir.

How The Global Issues Become The Core Of The Architectural Education?

An Integrated Approach By AGÜ School Of Architecture

Unspoken Issues in Architectural Education
April 3-4, 2014, Eastern Mediterranean University, Famagusta, North Cyprus

Would an engineer criticize a theatric performance or use social psychology in his/her decision process? Or would an anthropologist be inspired by quantum physics or arithmetical theorems in cultural analyses? As a response, leading universities established courses to level the undergraduate students in arts, humanities and sciences. Initiated mostly by the privately founded universities, the university-wide courses have entered into the agenda of the higher education system in Turkey. Instead of the traditional approach confining the students’ conceptions and skills within the limits of his/her discipline, the new methodology enables them to collaborate in different levels or to learn from each other.

Following the new approach in higher education, Abdullah Gül University (AGU) established its goals to mature students as world citizens who are equipped with professional and non-professional abilities and who have multifaceted skills enabling them to monitor the world in a larger perspective.  As an integral part of this approach, AGU settled global issues at the core of its mission statement and defined them as the principal element of its educational approach.  Here, global issues are the phenomena proposed by the international organizations like the United Nations, to define contemporary worldwide problems threatening the future of the life on earth and the current state of humankind: urbanization, peace, environment, health & food, sustainability, economic growth, democratic order and population. AGU appropriates them as the profound basis where the students have the challenge by developing new ideas and proposing individual and group projects throughout their undergraduate education.  In this context, AGU architecture program firmly states “due to flexible nature of architectural education; it is possible to reshape the architectural education as a new model focusing on the global issues”. Some of these global issues are directly related to architecture like urbanization, environment or sustainability and it may be argued that existing programs deal with them. However, other issues such as world peace, food & health problems, economic growth, democratic order or population problems, it becomes a striving challenge to incorporate them into the core architectural program.
