Yaşar Unıversıty – Department of Architecture
Research & Development Institute
Description of project:
The rural site is a heavy crowded urban settlement with insufficient informal housing. The local people lack basic needs as; clean water, sanitation, durability, and housing space and permits. What we as architects can do is provoke social change. What we can do about is the living areas. It is what we know. Therefore we are aiming to find a solution with the local people. We propose a Research & Development Institute where local people will interact with professionals for mutual information exchange. Therefore transforming the area into a testing ground for mutual benefit & future research about rural areas in general.
