Tourism Architecture in Alanya-Turkey in the Second Half of the 20th Century

Döngül, Bengüsu
This research focuses on the relation between tourism and architecture in the case of Alanya-Turkey during the second half of the 20th century. The town of Alanya was an important center for coastal tourism in the so-called “Turkish Riviera” from the mid-20th century onwards. By surveying particular tourism facilities that were built in the period from the 1950s to the 1990s from pensions and hotels in the city center to motels and mocamps along the motorway, and holiday villages and summer houses in the periphery of the city, the changing approaches in tourism architecture and the resultant urban transformation of the city into a coastal resort of the Mediterranean is evaluated.
