Özet

This study is based on a research project for the urban regeneration of an old historical region in the central business district. This district, where the Golden Horn meets the Bosphorus, is known as Galata and is accepted as part of the world's cultural heritage. Although historically Galata has played a significant role in Istanbul due to its location, recently it has been deteriorating rapidly because of vandalism and lack of care. Through an objective assessment of the problems and constraints of this historic core using the Space Syntax methodology, this study has identified possible physical design solutions that could enhance functioning of the area and decrease its isolation from the surrounding areas. In creating these proposals, the fundamental aim is to turn what is currently an unpleasant, derelict area into a new active zone without losing its historical character; and to create a unified, vibrant town centre incorporating the historic core of Galata with the existing retail and the seafront area. It is believed that this study, with its use of a formal methodology and interpretation, will contribute to the latest trends of urban design and draw lessons for future policy and practice.
