Abstract

 

From past to future, it is impossible to imagine or evaluate architecture without habitat. This study titled “Reflection of habitat on architecture: Ankara from the Republic proclamation to our days” aims to discuss the architectural expression of surroundings in Ankara from the proclamation of the Republic to our days in consideration of the idea that architecture is an expression of habitat. The reason behind the choice of Ankara in the scope of the study is its being a capital that has seen very different unique breaking points starting from the proclamation of the Republic in the context of its social structure. The study aims to explore how the architectural output has been affected by the habitat based on the said breaking points.

 

Key words: Ankara, capital city, Turkey, habitat, living surroundings.
