Architectural Hybridity in Contextual Representations for The Moment of Synchronic Essence

Ayşe Vildan Çelik, Aysu Akalın

Abstract


Hybridization can be described briefly as the encountering of two different situations, the positioning together rather than destroying each other. Many situations can be defined as ‘’hybrid’’ if it can relate to its surroundings or previous periods in a cultural or physical sense. The study aims to explain that using the hybrid systems while transforming is an important method to construct the essence of place. Within the scope of the study, a methodological discussion with the questions on hybridity in design has been developed on examples selected as ‘’contextual representations’’. Along with this theoretical framework, four different hybrid approaches considered as the main theme of the study are: mixed / merged (antique vernacular architecture of Çavdarhisar), front / rear (Zvi Hecker, Palmach Museum of History, Tel-Aviv, Israel, Amateur Architecture Studio, Ningbo Historic Museum, Ningbo), side by side combination of different centuries (LMO, Evangelist Educational Centre Hospitalhof) and lower / upper (Peter Zumthor, Art Kolumba Museum, Cologne). Considering the examples, the common goal of hybrid systems was to reach the “spiritual moment of synchronic essence” or a ‘’perpetual essence’’.
