Cities have experienced a fundamental social, cultural and economic transformation in recent decades. Especially, in developing countries, the ongoing migration process from rural to urban areas and the increasing concentration of people in big cities has accelerated socio-cultural and spatial differentiation and diversity. This process has also affected continuity and development trends in housing environment and quality of life. In many developing countries the most important issue is, therefore, the preservation of the balance between cultural continuity and demands coming from modernization. When the problem of contemporary Turkish Housing is approached from this perspective, the aim should be to explore the cultural content of the Traditional Turkish House, and then use this information according to a dynamic system analysis, which takes man-space interactions as a base. The solution to the architectural and urban chaos lies not in copying cultural patterns of others, but in making a dynamic analysis using the dimensions of culture, space and time and providing for a continuity of cultural content. The essence of new design should not lie in the reproduction of the well-known traditional forms but in the reinterpretation of its cultural core in order to develop more successful housing patterns. This essence is to be defined by examining the rules applied in ordering space or cultural values and relations, which are the result of a historical development, thus continuity will be achieved.
