SBP 218E - Project IV

Course Objectives

Within the framework of strategic spatial planning, the main objective of Project IV is the determination of the main components of a given settlement by applying decision making, evaluation and analysis methods and technics, and the discussion of the development of the settlement. In respect of the approach of strategic spatial planning, it is aimed at the following steps;
• The identification of the spatial dynamics of a given settlement with regard to settlement systems and spatial staging, transportation networks and relationships, space usage, and social, economic and environmental features,
• The determination of the cross-sectoral connections and their spatial impacts and the specification of the problems and technics that clarify social, environmental and economic structure
• The utilization of the strategic decision-making methods in the discussion of the visions considering the legal framework and social and institutional structures.
In the spring term of 2019-20, the project site has been chosen as Kartal District in Istanbul. In consideration of Environmental Plan and Regional Development Plan, Project IV aims to accommodate discussions on urban and regional development alternatives for Kartal settlement by the utilization of various analyses and evaluation techniques.
This project has been designed to provide information and skills for students on Geographic Information System (GIS) based analysis, synthesis and evaluation methods and techniques which can be used in future projects in their undergraduate education and professional life. The project also bears in mind planning principles as sustaining the environmental, social and cultural resources for future generations, balance between preservation and development.

Course Description

Based on the purpose of the project explained above, the project includes;
• To evaluate Kartal with its administrative territory and rural hinterland with respect to settlements’ systems and hierarchy in Istanbul,
• To discuss the potentials and problems, founded by the remarks from analyses of natural, built-up and socio-economic environments, commonly used in urban and regional planning,
• To produce the urban and regional development alternatives and scenarios by the utilization of analytic evaluation and decision-making techniques, used in contemporary planning approaches,
• To use oral, written and graphical expression techniques and mapping, evaluation and interpretation techniques in related programs (GIS, AutoCAD, NetCAD etc.).
