The Istanbul City Walls and the urban belt it defines contain many dynamics of the city and is constantly reshaped according to the changing urban conditions. This multi-part structure offers an original, exciting part of the town with its problems and opportunities. Any integrative intervention in this area has the risk of ending the multi-layered dynamism produced by the current unstable urban programs and demands. With this view, instead of proposing a singular design scheme, the project presents an urban design guide and then tests these strategies in six regions.
