Serife Ozata
Abstract—Cappadocia, which is popular with its natural scenic beauty, also has many important and special vernacular architectural features. In this study, architectural examples which were built in Cappadocia were analyzed in terms of energy saving, economic efficiency and compatibility with nature design in the areas which are similar to Cappadocia geologically and climatically. The necessity and advantages of an integration of today’s technology and vernacular architecture for today’s architecture can be explained by working on the solutions for material problems, natural ventilation, chimney design and natural lightning of the buildings of Cappadocia, which are rock-cut, rock-cut& masonry and masonry.

Index Terms—Cappadocia, traditional materials, ventilation and chimney design, natural lighting.
