ARCH501INTERDISCIPLINARY WORKSHOP ARCHITECTUREInterdisciplinary Workshop is a compulsory course offered to all  graduate students of Faculty of Architecture at an interdisciplinary level.  Since architecture stands at the intersection point of different study areas, the interdisciplinary character of the professional studies have to be employed. Thus, the aim of this compulsory course is to guide the students to carry out certain researches around their different interest areas while the theme remaining constant within one semester. 
ARCH505ADVANCED RESEARCH METHODS ARCHITECTUREThis is an introductory course at the level of graduate studies, for the purpose of developing an understanding of fundamentals of research & research process as well as ethics of research. It provides an introduction to methods of research for post graduate students in the Department of Architecture. The course is interactive and covers a range of knowledge and skills areas. 
ARCH520PHILOSOPHY AND THEORY OF VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE PROF. DR. ÖZGÜR DİNÇYÜREKARCHITECTUREVernacular architecture represents the bulk of the built environment. It has good reasons to be recalled as “the architecture of the people". Vernacular is the architecture of the common, ordinary people not upper class or avant-garde, and covers different scales such as particular geographical region, settlement, and built form itself with repeated patterns or ideal types with variations. The main aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the philosophical theories relevant to the vernacular and also to provide accumulative knowledge needed in the study of the vernacular architecture in general. On successful completion of this course, all students will have developed their knowledge about the philosophy of the vernacular architecture and research techniques in the study of vernacular architecture. 
ARCH523ARCHITECTURAL THEORY ARCHITECTUREThis course is an introduction to the theory of architecture as a discipline and to its development over history, from the Ancient to the contemporary period. It presents the ideas, philosophies and processes that have been developed over the course of history to understand architecture and a procedure for generating it. It considers architectural writings, as well as the relationship of these texts to cultural and intellectual history and to the production of architectural form. 
ARCH524THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF ARCHITECTURE II ARCHITECTUREARCH524 is theoretical course aimed to explore and examine varieties of architectural theory aspects reflecting to different theoretical mainstreams in different cultures and periods. So, the course will examine examples of architecture theories and practices from a wide variety of times and places through the prism of creative thinking, by rethinking architecture, possibilities and opportunities of architectural theory application of different typologies. This course is following recent developments by emphasizing the important ongoing processes. Accordingly, the course explores topics such as creative research and thinking, architectural expression, aesthetics, power, Identity, poetics, and ethical dimension of architecture, debating between different standings and attitudes (corresponding with history and theories in architecture domain), that includes complex understanding of architecture aspects as open laboratory for theoretical improvement. To achieve the aim, course will help students to understand various aspects of architectural theories; Integration of built form with meaning and expression; How building affect and control human character and emotions; Application of theory in architectural designs; The importance of critical thinking in development of architecture etc.

The theories of tectonics will be covered through Alberti (linaments), Palladio (proportions), Karl Botticher (kernform, kunstform), Gottfried Semper (streotomics and tectonics), Eduard Sekler (atektonik), Kenneth Frampton (ontology of construction), Juhanni Pallasmaa (hapticity) and Gevork Hartoonian's (towards a secular tectonics) theories. Metaphysical meanings of tectonics will be studied through Martin Heidegger's and Gaston Bachelard's philosophies. This will be done with the help of Semper's drawing of the Carribean hut. These concepts will also be applied to the tectonics of contemporary architecture by starting with Carlo Scarpa, Adolf Loos, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn. The students will also be asked to choose a more recent example of architecture to discuss in the class.

A students supposed to have academic skills necessary for critical readings of cultural texts as well. Introducing different discourse analysis approaches to the students and giving them opportunity for applying one of these analyses to the chosen popular cultural texts, this seminar aims to provide ability of seeing `the things` differently in communication.  The Seminar will be covered an overview of the approaches to discourse analysis with particular emphasis on post-structuralist approaches that take all the cultural text/practices as discursive to be read. Post-structuralist theorists and philosopher's works that did contributions to the critical discourse analysis will be discussed. Students will be expected to apply discourse analysis to cultural texts, such as media texts, architectural designs, bodily practices etc.  This Seminar aims to provide critical point of view to the graduate students that are based on recent post-structralist and post-modern theory. Through motivating students for approaching or re-reading all cultural texts deconstructively, the Main objectives of the seminar are to expose the multiple/possible meanings of the cultural texts that surround us. Thus another aim of the seminar would be, not only enrich students' academic/intellectual positioning but empower them as communicator/receiver.
