Theme of the Programme is:
"A Comperative Study of Traditional and Modernist Approaches to the Concept of the Street as the Characteristic of Urban Life"

Project Background and Aims

There has been a significant outcome from workshops and mutual visits between our university and its academic partners and European universities with which it has Erasmus agreements. There has been a need for support for implementation and post implementation (documentation, exhibitions et.) periods of these shared studies that we try to accomplish with the limited budget and resources of the university in the recent years.
There are significant experiences in some European countries. Comparative assessments of selected case studies of Jagerplatz -Berlin and Borneo and Java Islands - Amsterdam are expected to provide important input for future proposals. In this context, partner universities are expected to share their experiences in the selected case studies.

Today, we observe that that there are very important experiences within the different identities and social cycles of Eastern and Western Europe which should benefit from each other. In this respect, there is a need to establish significant results from these different experiences for our common future.

Academic staff in our university has further developed the subject by national and international publications, papers, teaching material, courses in the fields of urban design, urban conservation, urban planning, urban projects, historical city centres etc.
The "traditional" has been transformed. The experience of modernist organisation of space has provided important data. Innovative approach should demonstrate the valid results for today''s information society and cities for the future by drawing on both traditional and modernist experiences.

With this research, contributions in the following areas will made to urban design education / urban design Project studios:
Academic basis - case studies
Operational basis - analytical approach
Methodology - interface / public-private space division / regulations
New tools- design guides , design frameworks , restrictions
Successful graduate students who select urban design courses or studios will be encouraged to participate in the Project. They will gain 3 ECTS from working on the case studies analyses during the courses.

General Information
Co-operation between agencies and organisations are superficial in short term organisations such as workshops and conferences. The kind of organisations that our project proposes will enable the development of co-operation and comprehensive discussion on the knowledge gained.
Exchange of experiences are given significance in our programmes. We aim to compare quality in traditional and modernist urban space.
Academic education is not sufficient to guarantee co-operation between actors. However this kind of studies offers opportunities for multi-actor co-operations. Urban space symbolises a multi-actor structure. It will be possible to create an environment which supports co-operation between actors (NGOs, citizens, local government etc.)

We believe in the importance of sharing of knowledge and experience between experts working on these themes due to the multi-disciplinary dimension (social, economic, ecological, legal) of space.

Co-ordinator organisation will manage the project according to the phases defined in the timescale of the project. It will in this respect establish co-ordination between responsible organisations and facilitate the relations between them. Reports will be expected regularly from all partner organisations.

For monitoring and evaluation of the project, programme objectives will be taken into account. A shared evaluation will be made by preparing monthly reports. Thus synchronisation between the objectives and the outcomes of the project will be achieved.

In the stage of dissemination of the results of the project, launching a website is planned. In this context, also a guide will be useful for local authorities. Moreover, sharing of the results of the project with the chambers, with national and international platforms, citizens and local authorities by conferences and other means are envisaged.

Design guides as the final product of the project will be an important tool for all urban actors to act/work together in the context of the concept and the use of the street. The aim of the project is to establish the principles of the platform which will enable spatial and social togetherness by the shared guide. All actors involved in the process will help to identify these principles.

The main objective of the project is to develop guidance for future work by analysing the street and street space/life in its evolution process as the main characteristic of urban social fabric.

The methodology basically involves analysis and assessment of selected urban case studies from traditional and modern urban fabric. An assessment will be made addressing case studies from Turkey and European countries. Traditional case studies from Istanbul Historical Peninsula and modernist case studies from Berlin Jagerplatz and Amsterdam Borneo and Java Islands will be examined.

The street in history, the characteristic of urban life, was the place where different socio-cultural groups were integrated and the relationships between them were strengthened. Street facades symbolise togetherness as the interface of the multi-cultural structure. Moreover the street offers opportunities of difference at building scale.

In the new urban order, the monotony of streetscape and facades stereotype and kill individual quality, reflection, identity and thus social life. In this research, lost values/assets will be analysed and innovative criteria will be developed following successful examples of today.

Target Groups:
Urban life is a reflection of a multi-actor structure. In this context, the target groups of the Project will be academics, students, NGOs, local authorities, citizens and experts working on this subject. This work will create the ability for this multi-actor structure to act together.
Main Activities of the project is as follows:

Urban analysis
Targeted interviews
Shared meetings with actors
Technical visits
Juries / presentations

Expected outcomes
Sharing wth the city and the citizens by
Website, exhibition, seminar

Multi-actor discussions by
Platforms / a street association / identifying the problem

Participation by
creating the right environment - organising the actors - sharing the results

Dissemination of the product of
-internet- network - book- conference series - paper

Conclusions - synthesis
