Dear Readers,
I am happy to share with you the September 2023 issue of our journal, as the editor of NEU
Journal of Faculty of Architecture, which I took on due to the change of administrative duties
in our faculty. I would like to thank the former dean of our faculty Prof. Dr. Zeynep Ü. Onur’s
efforts and contributions who has been the editor of the journal since its first issue.
In this issue of our journal, which is developing with from the editors of our journal Assoc.
Prof. Dr. Can Kara's intense efforts, has five scientific articles by nine authors from five
different universities. This issue, which we have published, gives us great pleasure to contribute
to the communication of information among our colleagues.
World Architecture Day, which will be celebrated on October 2, 2023 with the theme of
"Architecture for Resilient Communities" of the International Union of Architects (UIA), will
once again reveal the importance of architecture in the world and will revitalize architectural
studies for the future.
We hope that the 2023-2024 academic year, which started with new excitement and new hopes
in these days, will be successful for all our colleagues and prospective colleagues, and we hope
to meet many valuable articles in our new issues. Thanks to everyone who contributed to our
publication. Stay healthy, with love, live architecturally.

The science is clear and all we children are doing is communicating and acting on that united science. Now political leaders in some countries are starting to talk. They are starting to declare climate emergencies and announcing dates for so-called climate neutrality. And declaring a climate emergency is good. But only setting up these vague, distant dates and saying things which give the impression of that things are being done and that action is on the way, will most likely do more harm than good. Because of the changes required are still nowhere in sight. Not in France, not in the EU, nowhere. And I believe that the biggest danger is not our inaction. The real danger is when companies and politicians are making it look like real action is happening, when in fact almost nothing is being done, apart from clever accounting and creative PR.
