Gölyaka Post-Earthquake Urban Design Project
In the 1999-2000 academic year, the studio concentrated on designing earthquake-resistant sustainable urban regeneration processes. The new planning approach suggested by the studio was to involve risk-reduction strategies, regulatory frameworks and reconstruction program supported by earthquake-resistant architectural and urban (morphological) typologies, safe (risk-free) gathering places, and a regional strategy for the new urban character (i.e. legibility in urban identity to resolve the settled contradiction between the urban and the rural, and finally, conservation of local architectural characteristics and natural heritage.
