Urban Transformation from the Sectoral Point of View
1 – ) What is the opinion of Hebo Yapı A.Ş., as the one included in the sector, with regard to Urban Transformation?
Rapid industrialization particularly after 1960,has brought migration from village to city together with it.Such situation has caused the country’s population to be concentrated in the cities. Unfortunately, this rapid settlement has unearthed such problems as, primarily unplanned and uncontrolled urbanization, the destruction of agricultural land, lack of transportation and infrastructure, lack of social activity areas, environmental damage or pollution. Due to all such reasons, the urban structure in Turkey, İstanbul in the first place, is required to be reconstructed.
2 – ) What kind of route should be followed for urban Transformation?
Despite the fact that more reliable houses have been constructed by the laws, ,in recent years, especially after the 1999 earthquake, more than 70 percent of the existing houses still pose risks.First of all, renovation of these buildings are required to be completed in the shortest time possible.
However, it is necessary to not consider Urban Transformation only as a project where buildings are reinforced.Studies in the regions where the transformation will be introduced, should be carried out taking the socio-economic and socio-cultural situation into consideration. People’s activity areas should not be seized or people should not be forced to be relocated.On the contrary, taking the people’s life habits and preferences into consideration, the cities should be configured in such a manner where the people should not be alienated, no separated from the social life, but live in peace and are in harmony with the nature.
The sheltering problem of human is as old as human history. This problem should be remedied by projects that prevent unhealthy growth of the cities, destruction of agriculture and forest land, and the destruction of historical artifacts that constitute the urban identity.
