RELOOKING AT HISTORY: 9000 YEARS UNTIL TODAY.

  

Presenter

Akheel Khan.

Course information (Content/Overview)

 

Description: Join architectural designer, Akheel Khan, as he shares his insights from travels across the world to discuss architecture of the past and its relationship to the present. In this workshop, he explores Turkiye over a 9000-year period. This workshop is part of a greater initiative on the Future of Architecture, focusing on relooking at the past to derive lessons to use in the future. This workshop is a 2-part, interactive workshop done over 2 weeks @ 2.5hrs per session.

 

The workshop covers a first principles approach to looking at the history of architecture. It will examine sites across Turkiye and look at lessons to be learnt from the cities of Istanbul, Cappadocia, Konya, Pamukkale, Antalya and more. The sessions look at learning from the past to utilise its thinking in the present, aiming toward improving the future of architecture.

 

 PART I:

 

Prehistoric Period (7000 BCE - 1200 BCE):Anatolia, the region that makes up modern-day Turkey, has a rich archaeological history, with evidence of human settlement dating back to the Neolithic era. We will explore the thinking around the Ziggurats, Ur and Catal Huyuk - with site images from Catal Huyuk.

 

Classical Period (1200 BCE - 330 BCE): The Hittite Empire was a dominant power in Anatolia during this time. Anatolia became part of the Roman Republic and later the Roman Empire. Iconic cities like Ephesus and Troy flourished during this period. Alexander the Great conquered the region in the 4th century BCE, leading to the spread of Hellenistic culture. We will explore ancient Roman and Greek influence, with site images from Aspendos

 

PART II:

 

Byzantine Empire (330 CE - 1453 CE):Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) became the capital of the Byzantine Empire. The Byzantines faced invasions from various groups, including the Seljuk Turks. We will look at the Ayasofya and surrounding architecture - with site photos.

 

Seljuk and Ottoman Empires (1071 CE - 1922 CE): The Ottoman Empire was a significant power in Europe, Asia, and Africa for centuries. The Seljuk Turks defeated the Byzantines at the Battle of Manzikert in 1071, paving the way for Turkish migration into Anatolia. Osman I founded the Ottoman Empire in the early 14th century. The Ottomans expanded their empire, reaching its peak under Suleiman the Magnificent in the 16th century. We will look at significant musjids (mosques) and infrastructure built during this period - with site images.

 

Decline and Modern Era (17th century - 20th century):The Ottoman Empire experienced a period of decline known as the Tanzimat reforms in the 19th century. The empire sided with the Central Powers in World War I, leading to its defeat and subsequent dismantling in the aftermath. We will look at the city of Istanbul - with site images.

 

Contemporary Period (1950s - Present): Turkey underwent significant economic and political changes in the latter half of the 20th century. Various political and social developments shaped the country. We will look at contemporary architecture in Turkiye, focusing on the Sancaklar Musjid - with site images.

 

Reading Material: The workshop will come with the presentation and explain how this forms part of a larger series. Recommended reading material and a source list will also be provided.

Title of CPD course

 Designing Creatively with Daylight 

Presenters

Keith Struthers (PrArch20575)

Course information (Content/Overview)

Designing Creatively with Daylight is an interactive live online course that gives you a practical and aesthetic foundation to the key Principles and Rules of Thumb for designing with natural light. All successful designs have mastered the play of natural lighting across surfaces and through volumes.
You'll learn how to analyse the different kinds of daylight to significantly improve the living experience by enhancing the subtle interplay of light and shadows. This includes, how to configure the overall massing of the building, through to the nature and positioning of the fenestration...without having to number crunch. We also deal with the basic errors most designers consistently make. The course covers material not taught at university or technikon. Expect the unexpected!
