URBAN & HOUSING LAB

It is aimed to reflect and allow current information and technologicel development that respond to interdisciplinary research, application and in-house requirements at national and international level based on sustainability, community benefit and environmental awareness.In this context Urban and Housing Research Laboratory:

  • Supporting education and training,
  • Orginazing national and international meetings,
  • Organizing national and international shorterm courses,
  • Publish all types of reserach outputs,

In the laboratory, urban and housing research will be carried out in a multidisciplinary manner. It will be ensured that the widespread experience of laboratory, the development of research within interaction of public and private sector and transferring it to the field of application. The Urban and Housing Laboratory works together with IAPS Culture and Space Network.

DYNAMIC RESEARCH ON URBAN MORPHOLOGY LAB

The DRUM (Dynamic Research on Urban Morphology) research group focuses on the diachronic aspect or urban and territorial transformations; it welcomes the expertise of Architects, Urban Planners, and Urban Morphologists including broad interdisciplinary cooperation with other disciplines such as Geography, History and Archaeology.

The research group aims to describe the dynamics of urban growth in different morphological and geographical settings by comparing a number of relevant case studies in capital cities. The research group applies the comparative method and other analytic tools, such as GIS, Space Syntax, Typological plans, Conzenian analysis at different scales and within different chronological phases to understand the past and above all, to design the future of large cities.

LANDSCAPE RESEARCH LABORATORY

The Landscape Research Lab (LRL) at ÖzÜ produces theoretical and applied research platform that facilitates the design for all manner of sustainable landscape at the urban and rural environment. LRL handles the determination of landscape characteristics, landscape components and elements in a holistic way. Natural, semi natural or totally manmade characteristics of landscape are the subjects of the research for future developments to promote healthy communitiesand challenge epistemological capacities of the subject area. Thus, LRL aims to work collaboratively to search the contemporary strategieson the relationships between natural environment and the specificities of built infrastructurevia education,interdisciplinary research, and innovation for the following areas and their sub themes:Resilient CitiesGreen&Blue InfrastructureDisaster Risk ReductionLandscape EcologyLandscape Heritage.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN RESEARCH LABORATORY

Architectural Design Research Laboratory is a platform that produces theoretical and practical knowledge through design and contributes to the design of qualified living environments. The main objectives of the laboratory are to create sharing and production environments such as seminars, workshops that bring together different actors of the architectural design environment and to develop research projects focused on architectural design. The laboratory also aims to allow students to experience the different stages and roles of the research and design process and, in this direction, cooperates with the architectural design office simulator (MITOS).
