Since Istanbul is located on an earthquake fault line, there are many neighbourhoods affected by urban development programmes which include the demolition and reconstruction of existing physical structures. One of these neighbourhoods subjected to a renovation process is located in the area surrounding Bagdat Avenue, one of the most exclusive districts of Istanbul, which has become increasingly attractive for developers and owners.
Within our design studio teaching, we have conducted a study about the sustainability of the urban development along Bagdat Avenue, with the purpose of preserving its distinctive features.
