"Fresh" Ideas from the London Festival of Architecture / Ilaria Pappalepore

The festival which aimed to make architecture engage with more people and to provide a "fresh" urban vision to the society came to a close in July 20th, after a month filled with a buzz of activities that not only celebrate architecture but also enliven the city life. For Ilaria Pappalepore, there could not be a better place for the world's biggest festival of architecture than London, a city that through history has always been able to reinvent itself, has never been afraid to venture, and where, as a result, totally different architectural styles manage to coexist in perfect harmony. However she stressed that many of the lectures were aimed at both architects and non-architects, the impression was that at most of the talks the audience was made of professionals of the field and students in architecture and planning.

The International Union of Architects (UIA), 23rd World Architecture Congress took place in Turin, Italy between June 30th and July 3rd 2008, under the theme "Transmitting Architecture". After the success of the last congress hosted by the Chamber of Architects in İstanbul in 2005, there were high expectations for the setting and context of the forthcoming Turin Congress. If the organizational problems are left to a side, the Turin Congress was successful in terms of spotting and reflecting on the contemporary architectural issues. Under the major themes in the programme, such as "culture", "democracy" and "hope", there were various presentations and discussions on topics related with the social responsibilities of architecture, values inherited from the historical courses and future perspectives, participation of the society to the build environment. The year 2008 is the 60th anniversary of the foundation of UIA. Therefore the UIA General Assembly, which was gathered right after the congress between 3rd and 6th July 2008, was given extra attention and significance. The assembly hosted the elections of the managing board for the forthcoming term as well as the members of the new UIA Council from the representatives selected from five different UIA regions. Günhan Danışman and Deniz İncedayı, who were the members of the Advisory Board of the UIA Office, Turkey, were listed by the Chamber of Architects and got elected for the forthcoming term covering the years 2008-2011.

Fragmentations in the History of Conservation in Turkey / Emel Kayın
The author provides a reading on the history of conservation in Turkey from 19th century to date through certain interruptions in political-economic and social-spatial fields. In her interpretation 1923, 1950, 1960, 1980 and 2000 are the specific years where these interruptions and fragmentations can be observed. Her argument stems from the idea that the history of conservation, just like political, economic and urban histories, moves on by means of climates and various affects dependant on external flows. There are significant glories in the history of conservation; however it will be more fruitful to determine the impasses of the field instead of re-glorifying the past experiences.
