SUSTAINABLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT
FINDING ANCIENT BUILDINGS AND LOST CITIES
The treasures of the world’s heritage are buried underground, and to date, always found mostly by accident.
- V. Gordon Childe and Lewis Mumford are two archaeologists defending two opposing views on the rise of civilizations and cities: while Gordon Child in his book ‘Man Makes Himself’ explains his thesis with an evolutionary point of view, Mumford in his book ‘The City in History’, claims that it is religious beliefs and rituals that creates a civilization.
The archeological site Göbeklitepe (southeast of Turkey) however, stands in confrontation with all its mystery and yet enough to change world history.
There is no logical explanation for how these works were done in the pre-Pottery Neolithic period 12,000 years ago; and no tools can be found in the site.
Many existing commercial satellites are developed enough to do researches both in deep space and to do close investigation of Earth’s surface to find traces of world heritage sites.
By examining the data obtained from the satellites, we may gain a deeper knowledge about the history of the world: we may be able to detect similar structures by combining data from photographs, topographical soundings, and gravitational fields to deduce the existence of buried ruins.
As we all know, the history of humanity is filled with myths of buried cities such as Mu Island, Atlantis and El Dorado. We can find their possible locations from the information we obtain from satellites.
There are no straight lines in the nature: rectangle, triangle, and circle are abstractions that comes only from the creative abilities of humans.
As we know the history any architectural buildings and places are implemented with endless combination of these three geometric forms, by reviewing images and data obtained from satellites, we can find places unfound, and consequently have more detailed accounts of our history on this world.
