My research has revealed how Turkey's rapid modernization and economic need has become a catalyst for producing a more hybridized and less homogenous landscape in some rarely studied central Anatolian Turkish villages. (Sibel Bozdogan and Resat Kasaba, eds., 1997, Rethinking Modernity and National Identity in Turkey. Seattle, University of Washington Press) One must consider the interrelation between the villagers' architectural choices and the ongoing social and cultural customs. My project, which borrows some methodology and theory associated with the disciplines of anthropology (Carol Delaney, 1991, The Seed and the Soil, Gender and Cosmology in Turkish Village Society. Berkeley, University of California Press) and archaeology (Martin Locock, ed., 1994, Meaningful Architecture: social interpretations of buildings. Vermont, Avebury), is primarily focused on the transforming morphology of the village and with identifying the key components that contribute to the changes. It is also concerned with analyzing the different meanings and social relationships in the making of house and home in central Turkey. (Onder Kucukerman, 1991, Turkish House(Turk Evi), In Search of Spatial Identity. Istanbul, Turkish Association) Finally, it offers a framework by which to analyze the new domestic lifestyle alongside the old at this moment of broad transition and evolution. I argue that extracting the essences from a local domestic culture is essential for new place-making and should be re-adapted for universal usage in this time of global shifts in economics and demography.
