Spatial Organization and Development Strategies

History of Istanbul Metropolitan Area Planning

The transformation in Istanbul affects not only its vicinity but also the Turkey as a whole. Yet, unfortunately the city does not have a stable and holistic upper-scale planning heritage. There are a lot of interruptions, restarts, cancellations and attempts most of which are barely related or even not related at all in the last 40 years of the city’s planning history. In this regard “Istanbul Vision 2050”, as a strategical planning process, will be prepared taking all this heritage into account.
