Three residential settlements in Ankara: what strategies for an environment sensitive sustainable urbanization?

2000-07-07
In Turkey, the urban extension that has gained new dimensions takes place in the form of a centrifugial development. The immediate consequences of this development are spatial fragmentation, social segregation and transfiguration of natural environment. In this perspective, three new residential settlements of Ankara -Batikent, Eryaman and Bilkent, created in different contexts and for diverse social groups- are studied with regard to the quality of environment and the question of residential identities. Underlying processes of the production of built environment call into question quality and sustainability of these newly created urban spaces.
