This is Architect Murat CETIN's homepage...


My name is Murat Cetin and I am an architect. I have finished my PhD research at the University of Sheffield. This is my first homepage.


I was born in 1969 in Ankara - Turkiye. I graduated Middle East Technical University, Department of Architecture in 1991 with an honours degree. I completed my Master of Architecture degree in 1995 in the same department. I practiced architecture in several architectural offices in several positions. I have had a full scholarship since 1995 to be enrolled in PhD program in the School of Architectural Studies, University of Sheffield in Britain.I had a chance to present my study at few international conferences. I finished my doctoral studies in December 1999. I am currently teaching in the third and fourth year design studios as well as Restoration Theory and Restoration Project.

The title of the research is "The Analysis of the Physical Transformation in Urban Renewal of Historic Town Centres in Turkey After 1980s Through Shape Grammars". The search is for an underlying regularity between different phases of urban transformation as a basis of new interventions into historic contexts. The research stems from the question of how new architecture can and should be integrated with existing context. The idea of transformation and its constant principles which constitue the basis of continuity determined the scope of the study. Considering the form itself as being the subject of architectural and urban design, Shape Grammar methodology is adopted as an appropriate means to decode such an underlying regularity. The results of this study, I hope , will contribute to the formation of an alternative theory of interventions to historic sites.
