  • ‘COMMUNITY’ AS THE BASIC ARCHITECTURAL UNIT: RETHINKING PRACTICE
           THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE OF ASF, ECUADOR

    • Authors: AMIRA OSMAN; JHONO BENNETT
      Abstract: Societies build for reasons, including and, beyond the need for shelter. The layers of meaning that make up thebuilding process include status, power, social convention, values and ideas on aesthetics. This inherent layeringof meaning through building ensures that every built work as a deliberate act – consciously or unconsciously –communicates meaning and gives shape and identity to those that build. While some contexts call for anoccupation of open space as opposed to building, it must noted that in these cases the decision not to build canstill be considered an architectural decision. Architectural history traditionally deals with individual buildings, yet historically building rarely exists outsidethe creation of multiple structures within some form of collective. Here the daily face-to-face interactions ofdynamic social networks and patterns of interaction in these collective spaces ultimately define what werecognise as settlement. To comprehend the values that underpin settlement, the expression should be seenthrough the ‘collective’ rather than an ‘individual’ form of expression. How one intervenes in such collectives and how to provide a relevant and appropriate service that facilitatesthe needs and wants of multiple authors through architectural design has challenged the very principles uponwhich the profession is built. This need for more effective and considered approach to design has seen a globalshift in practices and institutions to devise ‘alternative’ processes of design that acknowledge multiple authors,employ user-centered methods that ultimately allow for the ‘facilitation’ of collective expressions that aim togive way to shared and distributed decision-making in systems that should be critically participative. From this position the authors propose that the collective or ‘community’ should be considered as the basicarchitectural unit of design when architects and designers work in dynamic contexts of housing and informalsettlements. By embracing complexity and uncertainty, strict traditional design control is replaced by fluiddesign processes. Lessons learnt while teaching the post graduate Alternative Practice module at the University ofJohannesburg’s Architecture Department will be presented as well as experiences with the Architecture SansFrontiere’s ‘Change by Design’ methodology workshop/training in Ecuador, Quito. The theoretical basis of thisstudy draws from diverse literature sources, emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of the topic ofparticipative design and professional practice through collective authorship. The paper concludes by identifyingways to rethink spatial design practice based on concepts of co-production.

  • CONTENTIOUS POLITICS AND URBAN DESIGN: TOWARD A NEW ARCHITECTURAL THEORY

    • Authors: BARRY BALLINGER
      Abstract: Between the 1950’s and early part of this century gecekondular grew around every large city in Turkey. Despitelacking formal political opportunities, and being marginalized as “rural others,” the gecekondulu were able tomobilize within close social networks to claim their “right to the city.” Architects in Turkey remained mostlysilent during this period or echoed the rhetoric of the elites who saw them as a threat to Turkey’s modernity.The gecekondu phenomenon was an example of a social nonmovement. Social nonmovements, as defined byAsef Bayat, are everyday acts of widespread, mundane disobedience that lead to incremental, tangiblebenefits. As architectural theorists and practitioners become more involved in social engagement, morescholarship is needed to recognize the role of architects in social movements. To this end, I reviewed literatureon gecekondu and the surrounding discourse on politics of space. It is apparent through this literature thatsocial movements have an urban ecology, but how are they helped or hindered by urban form' How shouldarchitects approach social engagement in light of the role architecture plays in contentious politics' Theliterature on politics of space in Turkey deals primarily with two themes: 1) the conflict and negotiation ofbinary paradigms within Turkish society, and 2) the use of clientelism and co-optation within the builtenvironment to maintain power. Both phenomena are within the purview of the discipline of architecturebecause they deal with public space and housing. They offer a theoretical point of departure for understandingarchitects’ role in contentious politics. With this knowledge, design professionals can become a force fordemocratizing the built environment through social engagement. However, we must first engage in criticalscholarship about our role in the politics of space to develop new theories that will help shape architecturaleducation and practice.

  • THE URBAN PATTERNS IN “INFORMAL” AND “FORMAL” NEIGHBORHOODS: A
           GRAPH THEORY- BASED STUDY

    • Authors: EBRU ÇUBUKÇU; K. MERT ÇUBUKÇU
      Abstract: The urban “informal” neighborhoods in developing countries are the spatial outcomes of the informaleconomic relations and practices in cities. The emerge of these neighborhoods in Turkey goes back to the1965’s in parallel to the rapid growth of private industry, followed by an immense amount of migration to bigcities. The urban patterns of these “informal” neighborhoods can still be traced. In this study, the graph theoryis used to compare the spatial structure of “formal” and “informal” neighborhoods of Izmir. Twoneighborhoods to represent “formal” and “informal” urban patterns are selected: (1) Bostanli and (2) Ballikuyu. Six different graph theory-based centrality indices are calculated for each neighborhood: (1) edge density, (2)edge sinuosity, (3) eta index, (4) node density, (5) order of a node, and (6) beta index. The results showed thatthe urban street patterns pertaining to “formal” and “informal” neighborhoods of Izmir, measured throughgraph theory-based centrality indices, are remarkably different, and the results are statistically significant.However, the urban street network produced through a legal process is not necessarily superior to the legalone, when the graph theory-based indices are considered. Further research may consider a broader range oftime and space to generalize these results.

  • FRACTURING THE URBAN: SYMBOLIC VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF UNDERLYING
           SOCIETAL THEMES IN BELFAST

    • Authors: IAN MONTGOMERY; RUTH BROLLY
      Abstract: Belfast, Northern Ireland is a city permeated by structural divisions, echoing underlying and deeply rootedsocietal divisions, which no amount of architectural intervention, even Tabula Rasa, can completely eradicate.In a city where, from the late 1960s, civil unrest prescribed a solution of walls, these once temporary structuresare now permanent, having increased in size and number since the signing of the Belfast Agreement of 1998.The duality of the walls ensures that on one side communities are isolated in social housing developmentswhere the British Army historically approved planning measures dictated by security issues. On the other, aculturally neutral postmodern city centre, re-imagined as a global tourist destination, a free and invitingenvironment of consumption. This city’s built environment is further fractured by major roads initiatives.Without sufficient, organized or effective opposition, such as was seen in Manhattan, Belfast’s motorwayplanning has ensured destruction and redistribution of architecture, carving the city into ill-divided socio-economic portions. On the city’s arterial routes cultural identities are bound up in built environments divestedwith meaning through signs and symbols, where collective memory, hegemonies, group ideologies, history andmyth ensure a narrative of continuity despite changes to the landscape. Even with a ‘genius loci’ constantlyunder threat the socially produced symbolic landscape of the city’s arterial routes remains imbued withmeaning through tangible and visible expressions of culture. This paper undertakes an analysis of the builtenvironment and signage of these arterial routes, supported by a photographic archive, to demonstrate howsuch visual inquiry can prove a reliable barometer of socio-economic and societal undercurrents, mirroringcensus findings, in these long-established urban places.

  • SPATIAL SEGMENTATION WITHIN METROPOLITAN LABOUR MARKET: MAPPING THE GENDER
           DIMENSION

    • Authors: TANIA DEBNATH
      Abstract: Spatial segmentation of the labour market of informal workers within the metropolitan is observed globally. InIndia it is not only compartmentalised on gender, caste, ethnic lines but also geographically segmented by thecreation of spatially disjoined markets. The differential impact of this limited mobility on female and malelabour remains largely unexplored. The present paper argues that the labour market for informal workers issegmented into smaller labour markets separated by commuting (home-work) distance. Whereas all theworkers are spatially entrapped, women are in a more disadvantaged position because their choice ofemployment is also limited by gender division of labour. Hence, the present paper has two objectives. The firstis to map spatially fragmented labour market of smaller scale within a big metropolitan market. Secondly tohighlight the double disadvantage women face due to spatial along with gender constraints. This paper will alsotry to understand the underlying causes very briefly. The present paper is based on case study of labour market in Kolkata, the third largest metropolitan city inIndia. The labour market of Kolkata is dominated by informality of work which is segmented on the social,ethnic and gender line. This paper uses mixed methods based on data collected from field survey of 1000households located in 4 different low income localities. The quantitative focus is on the variable likeemployment pattern, workers characteristics and human capital, commuting pattern (travel-to-work distance)taken from the survey. The qualitative part is focused on the perspective of selected worker to understandunderlying causes. This paper will try to analyse the land use to understand how local availability affects marketchoice. The land use map used in this study is based on NATMO 1998 and Google Earth high resolution Map. In the study it is seen that the average commuting distance (travel-to-work distance) of workers are muchshorter than the metropolitan-wide scale. This is true for all the locations surveyed. Often the employmentfield around these 4 localities (residential areas) are non-overlapping. It is indicating towards the fact that theworkers in the informal employment are spatially constrained. It creates small, segmented highly localisedmarkets within the metropolitan city. Even within these micro-scale markets, women’s spatial access is moreconstrained compared to men’s. Men’s choice is primarily influenced by the availability of jobs (indicated bysurrounding dominant land use pattern) in the surrounding areas of their residential area. Moreover, a sectionof men (casual wage workers) have wide spatial access too. Women’s choice is highly influenced by genderdivision of labour. It is seen that women from all the locations are concentrated in female dominated jobs (suchas domestic help) and they work closer to home. This is indicating their double disadvantage where their choiceis extremely limited. From the worker’s response it is seen that this spatial segmentation is caused by the lowwage rate that prevails all over the city and higher commuting costs further lowering the real wage. Anotherimportant reason is spatially restricted social capital with limited knowledge about distant locations. Inwomen’s case their social capital is solely limited to the immediate neighbourhood, thus further restrictingtheir spatial knowledge and choice. Besides they have household responsibilities and safety concerns. Wheremen often chose to work near home to increase real wage, women are forced to take the jobs within theiraccessible space. Therefore, in this situation where both the gender is spatially trapped, women are in doublydisadvantageous position.

  • EXAMINATION OF EFFECT OF GLOBALIZATION ON URBAN LANDSCAPE THROUGH TRABZON
           ÇÖMLEKÇİ URBAN TRANSFORMATION FIELD IN THE CONTEXT OF URBAN
           STRUCTURE

    • Authors: Duygu Akyol
      Abstract: The phenomenon of globalization happening in today’s world exerts influence over developing countries and istried to shape societies’ economic, social and cultural life in line with the countries’ economic goals.Globalization process rapidly increasing its effect to hold the world economy affects unavoidably our life spacethrough its results and in turn, our urban structure. Urban landscape, one of the main components of urbanstructure, also undergoes a change during period of change and begins to gradually lose its fundamental dutywithin the city. Change requirement brought about by globalization leads to any changes, including way of providing municipalservices, urban physical structure, city identity and even life-style of town-dwellers, and these changes haveoccurred through large-scale projects most apparently. These projects developed as capital-driven weaken thefundamental principles of planning in urban areas. In such an environment, drastic changes have occurred inthe planning and designing of the urban landscape and its managements within the process. Public urbanlandscape areas have replaced with private urban landscape ones in many places. The impact of this changethat has taken place alters the perception of space in morphological, physical, social and administrativeaspects. What are changes in these phenomena, how do they occur and these changes are having today towhat extent are a situation that should be questioned. Urban landscape, one of precursors of city structure,firstly needs to be correctly identified and perceived so that all of these questions can be answered.Globalization process that begins to rapidly surge in all of Turkey in 2000s starting with the 1980s, changingcontent of urban landscape constituting the most important elements of public space within the frame ofchanging urban developments depending on global economic processes and design approaches will bediscussed through Trabzon potter urban transformation field in this report.

  • TOWARDS AN APPROACH TO HUMANIZE THE STREET ENVIRONMENT: RECONCILING
           PEDESTRIAN-VEHICLE RELATIONSHIP

    • Authors: NORA OSAMA AHMED
      Abstract: This study focuses attention on new approaches that had emerged seeking to create an equitable balance ofstreet space, and it is not possible without a need to compromise between the street movement function aswell its place function, the type of compromise varies widely throughout different cities; approaches as 20 mphzones, 30 km/h zones, traffic signal priority, complete streets and transit friendly streets focus on streettechniques, whereas ‘woonerf’, ‘home zones’, and ‘shared space’ focus on street environment. The studystands in the belief that it is matter of how the street physical environment affects the way people use it thanwhat it looks like and in doing so, it reviews previous experiences that made targeted efforts to get the mostout of their streets, both as transportation links for all modes of commuters and as vital places for people toenjoy, in addition to it addresses how to make streets work with all its components, how to get use of the rightof way trying to achieve different users’ needs with having limited constraints; ensuring that everyone can getfrom A to B easily besides enjoying using the street and concludes with identifying how the change in the streetphysical environment affect the way people use and perceive the street and ends up with specifying designguidelines that translate the relation between the physical attributes of particular public realm (street design)and the range of behaviors that this street environment affords (users’ behavior) and its integration as anincentive for the promotion and integration of non-motorized modes; specifying a street design approach thatreconcile people, place and traffic, and contribute in creating safe, attractive and enjoyable streets.
