TRANSFORMING LOCALITIES – HERITAGE PRACTICES IN MAKING OF LOCAL ARCHITECTURE
CASE STUDY: IMBROS / GÖKÇEADA, TURKEY

The research explores the transformation of local identity in relation to regional architecture on the former Greek island of Imbros (Gökçeada) in Turkey. It aims to understand the architectural implementations of the social transformation of a rural community in a global age. The fact that the structural evolution of the traditional ‘Imbriotic house’ has been interrupted by unfortunate state violence appears today as a chance for the islanders to consider their heritage critically, and to apply a self-conscious reconstruction of their old houses in today’s reality of the island. 

Examining how traditional houses are ‘modernized,’ this research tries to capture the transformation of the built environment in its cultural and historical context, focusing on the 3rd generation newcomers of Greek community. Analyzing the spatial changes on the typologies and the constructional adaptation of traditional houses in line with the changing needs of its dwellers, this thesis aims to understand which architectural components of the Imbriotic house are kept and/or changed in order to preserve the “local identity” in today’s regional houses. Concerning the future of the heritage of Imbriotic houses, the main research question is, “How can ‘regional architecture’ be used as a critical tool to reflect the tempo-spatial reality and its transformations of a specific place in a global age?”

The research is based on ethnographic field research, which yielded qualitative data from oral narratives and participant observations. The thesis will represent three reconstructed houses and their stories in the interdisciplinary case study.
