This thesis discusses the evolution of publicness expressed through different spatial planning approaches and interventions over the history of the Turkish Republic. Urban space is ideological and they are produced in accordance with an ideology. Throughout history, urban spaces undergo transformation and change in accordance with changing economic and socio-political dynamics. These dynamics not only transform urban space, but also affect the conception of publicness in society. In a sense, intervention into urban space is intervention into ideas of publicness. Throughout the history of urbanization, urban space has been the scene of conflict between the state, capital, and thepublic, but from the 1980s onwards, as a results of new urban policies, urban space has become the subject of conflict, and conflict has transformed into spatial struggle. In this study, the evolution of urban space and publicness in Turkey will be examined in the case of Güvenpark. The transformation of publicness is discussed in parallel with the spatial planning approaches and interventions over the history of the Turkish Republic.
