Earthquakes and Historical Buildings Seminar

Many civilizations such as Hittite, Urartu, Aka, Lydian, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman took the stage in the lands of Turkey, which is one of the first regions in the world to switch to agriculture and therefore settled life. These civilizations have left us a legacy of hundreds of structures that have survived in whole or in part, such as the Aspendos Antique Theatre, the Temple of Artemis, the Mamure Castle, the Hagia Sophia Museum, and the Selimiye Mosque. Naturally, the earthquake resistance of these structures, which have survived to the present day in the territory of our country, a large part of which is under the risk of earthquakes and exposed to the effects of destructive earthquakes many times, is a separate research. As the IAU Disaster Education Application and Research Center, we held a seminar on Historical Buildings and Earthquakes in order to inform the engineers who will build the structures of the future about the survey projects in which these works are evaluated in terms of architectural history, and to strengthen the bond between the past and the future. Our seminar, which we held on April 25, 2016, was attended by Middle East Technical University Lecturer Prof. Dr. Erhan Karaesmen attended as a speaker.
