There have been implementations of post-disaster housing even in historical ages and mentioned in studies concerning a specific period in time in which the disaster occurred in Turkey. With a brief overview of such history of post-disaster housing, the studies were reviewed based on the relationship between approaches and time periods concerning the architectural literature of post-disaster housing in Turkey between 1977 and 2005. There are mainly two types of architectural studies about this concept; observations and analyses about the general policy in Turkey, and case specific studies. These two types of studies can also classified within their writing style as well; descriptive style and analytical style of writing is used for a basis for the comparison of approaches used in the studies. The term 'architectural literature' used in this article were used for the works published by the architects and/or studies published in architectural magazines. From this analysis, it could be concluded that the architectural society in Turkey changed its point of view to more humanistic solutions in post-disaster housing after the 1999 Marmara Earthquake.
