Topic: A Positive Approach to Irregularity in Urban Design
Between planning and architecture, urban design has a process of self development. When this "in-betweenness" is evaluated according to the information and documents compiled from municipal practices, we reach an important data. A "process indefinition" is very striking in the context of managing urban design projects. Can a "new" track be adopted without incorporating urban design issues into the legislative framework? Do the concepts, processes and management styles included in the analyzes made within the scope of 90 municipalities constitute a "mess"? Or could these findings lead us to different professional acceptances? The search for a positive answer to these questions within the framework of governance was examined with an online presentation held within the scope of our department.
