‘The architecture forms a small part of a much larger picture.’

Architectural goals, of course, play a trigger role in terms of sustainability. But in reality ‘architecture ‘ forms a small part of a much larger picture. In no way can we address the architectural structure in a way independent of the dynamics and infrastructure of the city. The social egalitarian distribution that will affect political cant planning cannot be separated from the strategies of busy transportation systems or close access workspaces.


Our cities are leaving the green space with the Yesil roads, the structural disconnect between commercial and residential areas is growing and more roads are part of the problem as more consumption. However, urban sustainability is dominated by the idea of a settlement that focuses on the goal of increasing the livability of the city by decreasing the use of resources and solid waste. A residential idea that focuses on the goal of increasing urban liveability dominates. The meaning of urban liveability varies according to location, time, the purpose of the assessor and the value systems of the assessor. However, the concept of ‘liveability’ still retains its power in all cases and can be the common public policy goal of different stakeholder groups.
