Programming mixed-use projects with changing urban dynamics and user profile

Uğur, Emre
The thesis investigates mixed-use projects and their functions and these projects' relationships with urban from urban scale to the building scale with examining mixed-use idea and mixed-use environments in urbanization processes from industrial revolution and post-industrial urbanization to the modernization, postmodernization and eventually context of globalization. Existing structures in post-industrial era, development of modern cities, modernism, post-modernism and neoliberal globalization, are analyzed chronologically in each chapter about centralization modes of urban and urban planning processes and these processes' relationships with politics and economy. Contemporary urban structure, relationship between planning and economy and social dynamics and links between mixed-use projects and these relationships are researched with the results of the concepts which are surveyed until contemporary debates. As a result of this, there will be an analyze about contemporary meaning of mixed-use projects and its relationship with architecture, urbanization, urban planning, centralization, social dynamics, user profile and economic structures.


Exploiting Earth Observation in Sustainable Urban Planning and Management - the GEOURBAN Project
Esch, Thomas; Taubenboeck, Hannes; Chrysoulakis, Nektarios; Düzgün, Hafize Şebnem; Tal, Abraham; Feigenwinter, Christian; Parlow, Eberhard (2013-04-23)
Sustainable urban planning and management demand innovative concepts and techniques to obtain up-to-date and area-wide information on the characteristics and development of the urban system. The increasing availability of Earth Observation (EO) technologies has provided new opportunities for a wide range of urban applications, such as mapping and monitoring of the urban environment, socio-economic estimations, characterization of urban climate, analysis of regional and global impacts and urban security and ...
Analysis of urban morphology in squatter transformation areas
Şahin, Mustafa Raşit; Yetişkul Şenbil, Emine; Department of City and Regional Planning (2014)
The impacts and results of urban transformation has been discussed as an important issue in developing countries by different disciplines as political economy, urban design, city planning and urban sociology. Urban transformation projects in Turkey are mainly criticized since the main focus is about physical transformation. In this context, the aim of the study is to determine what quality of space is produced by urban transformation projects in Turkey. Urban transformation projects creates a different scal...
Project céramique / maastricht; reassessment of a regeneration project
Mutlu, Deniz; Cengizkan, Ali; Department of Architecture (2015)
Urban transformation is an economically, politically, socially and physically conscious behavior and approach executed to designate planned, man-made interventions. The content of the phenomenon comes with a complexity due to; - The involvement of actors both in the pre-implementation with discussions and arguments and during/after implementation with involvements and monitoring. - The dynamics of economic and political conditions as well as cultural and technological alterations. - The ambiguity in its def...
Sustainability of urban regeneration in Turkey: Assessing the performance of the North Ankara Urban Regeneration Project
Korkmaz, Cansu; Balaban, Osman (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
The increasing environmental footprints of cities necessitated the integration sustainability principles into urban planning and development frameworks. The growing attention on urban sustainability also influenced the policy and the practice of urban regeneration. The quest for new methods for regenerating existing urban quarters in sustainable manners resulted in the concept of sustainable urban regeneration. The concept aims to develop urban regeneration projects in line with the three key pillars of sus...
Parametric modelling for the mitigation of urban heat island effect: a model proposal
Sakar, Begüm; Çalışkan, Olgu; Urban Design in City and Regional Planning Department (2018)
Morphological characteristics of urban settlements as the outcome of the long-term planning decisions influence microclimatic conditions of our cities and more specifically induces the “Urban Heat Island” (UHI) effect, which generates many undesirable conditions in the living environment. In the very context of global warming that generate intensive UHI in the cities, any change in the thermal balance of the urban environment is associated with the main parameters of urban geometry. This is actually the iss...
