Supported by three separate field surveys, written and verbal sources, as well as archival documents, this research fulfils the requirements of the historic preservation discipline with meticulous survey and documenting; identification of the values and problems of the surviving cultural assets of production, trade, education, and cultural life; and eventually contributes to our understanding of the multi-layered past of the Southern Marmara Islands. The research also includes recommendations on emergency measures as well as short-, medium- and long-term interventions for the protection of the cultural assets.
The project also aimed to increase the impact of the architectural documentation through the use of digital technologies. In this context, digital technologies were used in cooperation with The Heritage Management Organization (HERITΛGE) to present architectural and intangible aspects of the structures together.
