A study on physical resilience of urban transformation implementations in Turkey under the law numbered 6306

Üstüncan, Umutcan
The physical development that ignores the unique dangers of Turkey in the process of urbanization and subsequent urban transformation which has created today’s settlements consisting of large risk pools. This is due to disasters with great loss, especially earthquakes; the intervention of a non-market hand, in other words, the intervention of the state was inevitable. This intervention was aimed to be done with the Law Numbered 6306 published in the Official Gazette on May 31, 2012. The law was enacted with the name of “Transformation of Areas Under Disaster Risk”, taking into account the effect of legal legislation on transforming physical space as an urbanization strategy. The basis of this study is based on that research question “Do the urban transformation implementations applied in risky areas in Turkey within the scope of Law Numbered 6306 actually eliminate the disaster risk and increase the physical resilience in accordance with their original purpose? Therefore, within the scope of this law study, only the “Risky Areas” are focused on, rather than risky buildings and reserve areas that are defined in the Law. Risky areas, on the other hand, were examined considering mainly their spatial characteristics and standards. As a result of these studies, although the structural problems of buildings were overcome in the urban transformation implementations carried out with the 6306, it was observed that the urban problems which indicate an increase in disaster risks instead of an overall reduction within the understanding of resilient cities became profounder in all layers.


A Comprehensive Study to Define Local Site Effects in Northern Ankara Turkey
Eker, Arif Mert; Akgün, Haluk; Koçkar, Mustafa Kerem (null; 2013-05-31)
The study is mainly focused on the dynamic soil characterization and determination of site effects for the PlioQuaternary and especially alluvial soils of the Çubuk district and its close vicinity in Ankara. It was observed that the shear wave velocity values for the uppermost 30 meter of the soil profile is not adequate to classify the sites properly and these values could not be correlated with the H/V results obtained from the microtremor records due to the great thicknesses of the soft sediments. The hi...
Türkiye'de kent yoksulluğunun değişen yapısı
Işık, Oğuz; Pınarcıoğlu, M.melih(2008)
Project titled “The Changing Structure of Urban Poverty in Turkey” is an attempt to undestand the changing characteristics of urban poverty in Turkey in the face of 2002 economic crisis and ensuing restructuring and transformation. It has been emphasised in a number of previous studies that the dynamics affecting urban poverty in Turkey had already started to change since the mid-1990s and that the crisis accelerated the change, with th ethe result that the new social groups with no experience of coping wit...
A History of the Development of Conservation Measures in Turkey: From The Mid 19th Century Until 2004
Kurul, Esra; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2009-01-01)
Bu makale, Avrupa Birliği’ne uyum sürecinde kapsamlı yasal ve yapısal dönüşümlere sahne olan Türkiye’de, özellikle 2004 yılındaki değişimlerin eşiğinde, Osmanlı’nın son döneminde gündeme gelen ve 2004 yılına kadarki süreçte evirilerek gelişen mimari ve kentsel koruma alanının yasal ve idari kurumlaşma çerçevesinin gelişimini tanımlamak ve mevcut duruma ilişkin bir ön değerlendirme yapmayı amaçlar.
Türkiye’de yaygın olarak kullanılan pestisitlerin kirlilik potansiyellerine göre sınıflanması
Ünlü, Kahraman; Sözüdoğru, Sonay (1997-01-01)
Uncontrolled use of agricultural chemicals in intensive agricultural areas of Turkey causes serious soil, surface- and ground-water pollution. Controlled use of agricultural chemicals is of importance for preventing further pollution of these natural resources. The objectives of this paper are to present a screening model that can be used to determine the scientific criteria serving as basis of controlled pesticide use, to classify pesticides according to their pollution potential and, based on this classif...
The effects of local conservation capacity to the maintenance of historic city centers as a governance process : Gaziantep and Şanlıurfa case study area
Belge, Burak; Tuna, Numan; Department of Architecture (2012)
In Turkey, although there are many similar implemented or ongoing conservation interventions, some of historic city centers are in better condition than other ones in terms of urban conservation. Conservation discourse describes the conservation of historic city centers as a shared and sustaining responsibility of various actors. At that point, locality is essential because of near and directs relations with historic environment. However, there are basic problems to develop a synergy based on shared respons...
