Abstract


Today, in the frame of the transformation of the city and the social dynamics, there can be seen a congestion and repetition in the context of the city/citizen/architecture. It is possible to examine the spatial consequences of the social transformations that modern individuals experience, but only by comprehending the importance of the strong relationship between the space and the identity of individual. It seems difficult to produce ‘the new’ in architecture as long as the new ways of seeing not produced in this complex situation. Today, since the Chaos Theory gives us hope concerning the social sciences that include architecture and sociology, it can be used as a tool to investigate the current situation of architecture.

In the metropolitan city, there is a direct relationship between design process and the views of today's architect in the face of the chaotic natural atmosphere and the linear orders created by society. Through the chaos theory, this paper will discuss the views of the today’s individual on the line of complexity in daily life and the attitude of today’s architect on the edge of chaos.
