Planning As A Tool For Modernization In Turkey: The Case Of Hermann Jansen’s Plan For Mersin
Beyhan, Burak; Uğuz, Selçuk (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2012-12-1)
Early 20th century urban development plans and regulations as the culmination of the efforts made for the modernization of the cities constitute a special and substantive domain of focus for the historical analysis of cities in terms of understanding the nature and objectives of planning today. Yet, except for big cities such as Ankara, İstanbul, İzmir, Adana and Bursa, most of the cities in Turkey are not studied in depth within such a context. Unfortunately, those studies conducted for both big and small ...
Planning as/and/in Context: Towards a New Analysis of Context in Interactive Planning
Van Assche , Kristof (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2007-6-01)
In this paper, we propose a revisiting of the concept of context in spatial planning, especially in the analysis of the rapidly growing sector of interactive, collaborative, communicative planning. In interactive planning projects, different stakeholders with different backgrounds, interests, negotiate a plan for an area. Communication, interpretation, and therefore the concept of context, as everything outside the actual communication that influences its meaning, become correspondingly more central to plan...
Planning: A Continiuum Of Utopian And Non-Utopian Sensibilities

This implies that neither set of precursors is the exclusive impetus behind...

Planning for the unexpected: Barriers to young people s participation in planning and disadvantaged communities
Severcan, Yücel Can (2011-06-17)
This paper discusses barriers to civic engagement of disadvantaged young people that we observed in the course of a child-friendly city project in Turkey. It also emphasizes the importance of being prepared to overcome such barriers, some of which were quite unexpected. Results show that many of the unexpected issues are the outcome of poverty, illiteracy, lack of ethics, inexperience of project managers, conflicting political interests and sense of insecurity. The paper concludes with suggestions for resea...
