Design: Processes Changes / Transformations…
As we can change, transform and increase our awareness, we grow, whether institutionally or individually. The universe has achieved this situation since the beginning of its unknown existence. Likewise, we are humans who continue to achieve this.
In the century that we are witnessing rapid changes in every field. These changes will inevitably be reflected in design thinking and the built environment. In a changing and transforming world, the DICLE UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE organized the second INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE SYMPOSIUM with the main theme of “DESIGN: PROCESSES / CHANGES / TRANSFORMATIONS”. (11-12 October 2021) In the symposium, changes and transformations were discussed in the sub-themes of Sustainability, Design and Planning, Design and Technology, Art and Architecture, Historical Environmental-Cultural Heritage and Architectural Education, with the perspectives of the participant’s knowledge and experience.
In this symposium, we would like to thank everyone, especially the selective and evaluative editor and the referee committee, who contributed to the creation of the special issue containing the papers selected from the symposium as a result of the joint work with the Dicle University Faculty of Architecture.
Dear Readers and Dear Authors;
We are together with a special issue in our 51st publication. As a publication policy, Urban Academy prefers to publish themed issues instead of special issues. Even so, when the subject is design, change, transformation and creation processes, We became a stakeholder in Dicle University II. International Architecture Symposium with the support of the publication.
36 papers were proposed to this issue of our journal by pre-selection from the papers presented at the symposium, 22 of them were re-evaluated by our Integrated Editorial Board and received Pre-Acceptance for uploading to the system. 18 of the Pre-Reviewed were uploaded to the system, and 13 of them passed the refereeing process successfully and were found suitable for publication.
