Architecture is inspired by everything in regard to humanity, nature and life. This interrelation completely exceeds its mere status as an “art of building structures”. Today’s architectural protection presents itself by getting its inspiration from unlimited amount of resources like a “living organism”, grows, and changes by evolving. Numerous disciplines such as art, philosophy, psychology, aesthetics and literature support architecture’s life in this process. This multidisciplinary structure, especially in the last century, altered architecture and led it to reach another dimension. All fields of art including architecture are affected by the existing conditions of their period. While such affects show themselves visually-physically in architecture, texts express the social, cultural and economic conditions, interpersonal relations, intellectual structure of the period, and similar issues in the background in written form. At this point, the approaches on architecture by textual statements which reflect upon it, were found worth investigating. Therefore, national thesis studies that had been conducted on the architecture-text relationship were examined. As a result of the analyses, it was determined that textual studies approach architecture in terms of architectural representations and concepts. Hence, by investigating the representations of architecture that exist in everywhere in life and experimentally studying the concepts, the significance of other disciplines was revealed in terms of making sense of the past, present and future of the architectural environment
