Unkapanı Değirmeni Rölöve, Restitüsyon ve Restorasyon Projesi

SURVEY, RECONSTITUTION AND RESTORATION PROJECT OF UNKAPANI MILL

Today, lack of consciousness and acts of wrong preservation constitute a big threat for the demolishment of historical industrial buldings. These buildings which in time lost their functions have not been given as much importance as the other monumental building types and thus have not been preserved. With the development of technology and establishment of new factories, mills, like many industrial buildings, lost their function and were abandoned to demolishment. Only very recently have these buildings been considered industry’s historical witnesses and been taken under preservation.One of the19th century industrial buildings, which has lost its function today and become a ruin very quickly as a result of remaining unused and uncared for, is the Unkapanı Mill. The aim of this essay is to enable the registration of Unkapanı Mill by documenting its destruction day by day so that it will be taken under preservation at least from now on. Therefore first, the history of the building, its location and the characteristics of its surroundings are explained. Then the change it underwent since the time it was built, is analyzed from an architectural perspective. Findings are supported with planimetric drawings and elevations; as a result, a solution is proposed to reanimate the building
