Aphrodisias Museum, Karacasu, Aydın, Turkey
The Aphrodisias Museum , opened in 1979, exhibits works found only in excavations from Aphrodisias. The majority of the works constitute sculptures. The first museum in Aphrodisias is very small. Instead of the large museum to be built later, an additional museum was built; where the Ministry of Culture decided to display Sebastion sculptures by the Memorial Board.
There are Roman and Byzantine walls underneath the museum annex, which are not very important. The inside of the museum is designed with a steel structure and is designed to be placed on building piles. The piles are placed in such a way that they will not coincide with any wall remains, they will not touch any gates. Sebastiona and steel feet with 180 cm spacing, suitable for sculptures, are fitted with steel beams passing 5.40 m openings. Thus, under the structure held in the air, everything can be seen.
Outer wall is designed as air gap, heat, moisture insulations, air gap, gypsum board behind the native (Çanakkale Seramik, special measures) clinker respectively. The light distribution of Yapi has been examined in the relevant department of Yıldız Technical University. The entire structure was completed within 7 months of October 2007. Total construction area is 745 m².
