Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs <h2><strong>Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs (JCUA)</strong></h2> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs (JCUA)&nbsp;</em>is the interdisciplinary academic, refereed journal which publishes two times a year by&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Alanya Hamdullah Emin Paşa Üniversitesi</a>. JCUA brings together all the theories, manifestoes and methodologies on contemporary urban studies to raise the understanding for the future of urban planning. Overall, JCUA aimed to establish a bridge between theory and practice in the built environment. Thus, it reports on the latest research findings and innovative approaches, methodologies for creating, assessing, and understanding of contemporary built environments.</p> <p><strong>Serial type:</strong>&nbsp;Journal</p> <p><strong>Publisher: </strong>Alanya Hamdullah Emin Paşa Üniversitesi</p> <p><strong>Format:</strong>&nbsp;Print and Electronic version</p> <p><strong>Web site:</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Editor:</strong>&nbsp;Dr. Hourakhsh A.

The scope of this study is the Regent Street from 1818 to 1848. This paper aims to answer the following question: <em>could space be a product that we can produce or what other things involved in this production process?</em> Numerous theorists contribute to the spatial analyses of this historical research. This paper puts special emphasis on the Lefebvrian spatial triad as a methodological decoder along with the Actor-Network Theory (ANT) to analyse the 19<sup>th </sup>century-Regent Street. The combination of the triad, as well as the ANT, will be deployed as an original tool to analyse spaces with their data; then they will be used to create a spatial map. To do so, visual and written sources will also be used as data to decode and re-map or re-paint the modern life of Regent Street during the Regency Period.&nbsp;</p> Hidayet Softaoğlu, Dr. ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sun, 11 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000 The Cognitive Use of Prior Knowledge in Design Cognition: The Role of Types and Precedents in Architectural Design <p style="text-align: justify;">This paper examines the cognitive use of prior knowledge in design and evaluates the role of types and precedents in architectural design and education from a cognitive perspective. The previous research on design cognition shows that the amount of prior knowledge possessed by the designer plays a fundamental role in the production and quality of the creative outcome. This paper examines this correlation between the cognitive concept of cultural schemas with the architectural concept of types and investigates the cognitive role of types and precedents within architectural design and education in the light of the cognitive literature. With such an attempt, the research conducts an interdisciplinary theoretical inquiry that respectively studies the role of prior knowledge in design cognition, the concept of cognitive-cultural schemas, the concept of type and its relationship with cultural schemas, and the cognitive role of types and precedents in architectural design and education. In conclusion, this study proposes that types function identically as cultural schemas at the cognitive level and types and precedents have a generative value for architectural design, by virtue of the fact that they exist as the initial cognitive schemas that are employed at the beginning of the design process.</p> Zeynep Cigdem Uysal Urey, Dr. ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 13 Jul 2019 00:00:00 +0000
