Tim utilizes state-of-the-art simulation and modeling tools to systematically evaluate how ancient building systems intensively shaped the behavior of light, heat, and airflow present within the extensive environment. These platforms are used to expand the purview of the historical survey, accounting for issues of performance thereby disclosing strategies used by early populations to organize space in concert with factors dictated by the natural environment. The lecture will focus on his recent interdisciplinary work with archaeologists in Turkey where insights drawn from early populations serve as the basis for new construction in the region.

Tim Frank is an architect, educator and researcher.  His practice is based in Atlanta.  He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Architecture at SPSU and he serves as a Senior Researcher at Gygaia Projects in west central Turkey.
