Interior Design in Eco-Tech City Model



Eco-Tech Cities, Eco-Tech Space Design, Eco-Technologies


The eco-tech design concept, which is a combination of ecology and technology concepts, was born as a need because today's design strategies cannot bring a space-scale solution to environmental problems. It draws attention to the awareness of environmental problems and the relationships between the structural area and the natural environment. The concept of eco-tech refers to the best preservation of ecology with the help of technological tools. In order to ensure a sustainable life by considering ecology and technology together, it is based on natural elements, natural processes, and advocates that technology should be used to protect nature. The aim of the study is to bring together ecology and technology centered design under the same title. In this context, the eco-tech city model, which has a city-scale counterpart, was examined and an overview of eco-tech spaces was developed. The answer to the study is the question “How do they design a space without choosing between ecology and technology in the space design that will develop in the eco-tech city model?” It is the question. The buildings and interiors designed within this scope are energy efficient, ecologically sensitive and contain many technology systems. Within the scope of the article produced from the master thesis, the concept of eco-tech, which constitutes the design concept of the future, has been handled in the space scale. In this process, eco-tech cities have guided the formation of the general framework of the concept. As a result of the literature review, an overview of the concept of eco-tech was created and four technology systems used within the scope of this concept were discussed. Contribution of environment, information, communication and geographic information technologies to design has been evaluated in an ecological dimension. In order to evaluate the concept on a spatial scale, five samples selected from different regions of the world were analyzed in accordance with the concept of eco-tech. The interior features that can be created within the scope of the eco-tech concept are examined through examples. As a result, an overview of the concept has been created and the eco-tech design process has been handled under six main topics. The process, sociological factors, regional data, eco-technologies, smart systems and material titles define the process of the concept of eco-tech. The conceptual process was evaluated on the scale of the interior and eight items were created for interior spaces to have an eco-tech feature. These substances determine the quality and functions of the interiors of the future. The concept of eco-tech contributes to the environmental problems and resource problems sought in the world on a scale of structure and interior space.
