Presentation

The aim of this workshop is to address water supply and water-related structures from architectural, urbanistic, environmental and sociological perspectives. While the chronological timeframe covers the period from Antiquity to modern times, the geographical Framework focuses on Anatolia and its bordering regions, as they were part of the Ottoman Empire. Buildings concerned in this study include any kind of public structure whose function is related with the use of water (bath house, fountains, aqueducts, dams, pools, cisterns, baptisteries and so on).
We wish not only to question the impact of water-related structures on the environment, but also to define the architectural and sociological patterns that shaped their use and establishment throughout the ages.
Our goal is to gather scholars with knowledge of diverse time-periods and regions as well as in different fields of technical expertise in order to produce a new, over-arching approach to study water supply and water-related structure from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is hoped that the workshop might be a starting point for further collaborative work on the topic, within the larger framework of the research project Balnéorient.
