Bozburun Urban Project
As a rural settlement where everyday life and its spaces have been shaped by the integrated and peaceful relationship with the sea, Bozburun exposes unique characteristics of a spontaneous development rather being the product of a systemic planning process. However, since the planning legislation obligates ‘an approved development plan’ for any urban settlement, Bozburun had to face some problems caused by the conflict between the planning codes and the peculiarities of the town. METU MUD Studio took these actual planning problems as the major challenge of the design project and put some alternative solutions for them. The design studio proposed alternative schemes for the future coastal development in Bozburun along with a series of strategic interventions.
