Within the context of Turkey, where a rapid
social and urban transformation process has

been experienced recently, it would appear

as if the relationship between memory and

space has gained even more importance, as

can be seen from the increasing number of

studies, especially in the 2000s. Having this

in mind, the question of how the architectural

object and architectural space are defined

becomes more relevant, since the former

shapes a society’s collective memory as an

image remembered, and the latter creates

its own temporal knowledge within the urban

memory thanks to its function, infrastructure

or the habits of its users. In other words,

answers to questions such as what can gain

ground in spatial memory, as well as how or

why; or whose spatial memory is descriptive

and whose is not, also become more relevant.

In this file, which aims to create a discussion

field about spatial memory and its narrative,

Funda Uz
examines the emergence of
multiple narratives in the process of the

spatialization of memory or the establishment

of space by remembering, as the concepts

relate to each other, “human” as the subject

in recording; “time-space” establishing the

experience via remembering and reminding;

and “archive” as the material of this whole


Mekânsal belleğin izleğini, mekânsal anlatılarla ilişkilendi-
rerek kurmaya çalıştığım bu metni, birbirinin içine geçmiş

üç eksende örmeyi hedefliyorum: arşiv, insan ve zaman-

mekân. Nasıl bir metin alıntılar, dipnotlar ve ayraçlar olma
dan düşünülemezse, belleğin mekânsallığına dair bir anla
tının da insan, arşiv ve zaman-mekân alt temaları olmadan

kurulamayacağına inanıyorum
