abstract: Under the topic of the artistic / architectural formation in the context of the visual culture, the study reconsiders the architectural trails from the educational perspective, defining them as complex systems, with an essential perceptive role.
The area of Asia Minor and Central Anatolia is centred as a library of historic examples with extended global roots, an optimal areal to be observed, seen, imagined and recreated by interconnected understanding.
The present study is re-evaluating the points and the links, experimenting the historical architecture elements through a contemporary visual filter. The final aim is to rebuild the common trails by implementing a specific method, using thematic maps and itinerary walks. The method focuses on binomial models, associating contemporary and early examples, in a practical lesson of evolution and adaptation. Global history and compared architecture are the key points in the experimental approach of walking lessons.
The main goal is to underline the global values that transcend local perspective, and to extend the common architectural perception. The results reveal multiple implications: the educational approach becomes a more complex system of understanding and assimilating history along with the increased projected value of the selected elements.
