Abstract


THREE BUILDINGS IN ISTANBUL IN THE CONTEXT OF SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION

The most important aim in terms of sustainable buildings is to deal with the relationship between environment and build-up environment in a new and integrated approach and in a way to enable sustainability. This approach means redefinition of the relationship among all of the urban environment, building and indoor building in the context of environmental (ecosystem), economic and social sustainability. In this context, performance measurement is carried out by creating different environmental assessment methods in many countries. Measurement results are presented as numeric values, and this situation provides easily understood, evaluated and compared results to be offered. In this study, the assumption that there is a complementary relationship among sustainable development, sustainable urbanization and sustainable buildings unlike a clear contrast is taken an essential acceptance.
