The following area within the Galata district was selected for the planned workshop:

Between Serdar-i erkem St. and Dibek Street , not far from the underground station Sishane ( Istiklal St. ) and Galata Tower , there is a plot of land bisected by a steep drop, which, despite having great potential, has been unused for nearly 90 years.
By focussing on the above area, it is the aim of the workshops to sensitize participants to the diverse aspects of the quality of urban living in Istanbul and to develop possible future approaches to these questions. The following specific steps are planned to achieve these aims:


Using a variety of information materials, participants individually examine the planning area. For this purpose, short videos of the project area and other materials can be accessed on the project website


During inspections in groups of up to six participants the area is subjectively assessed in terms of its specific strengths and weaknesses, as well as possible dangers and potentials. These analyses are to be presented to the other participants in ad hoc presentations, lasting no more than 10 minutes, using texts, sketches, collages, models and photos (no AutoCAD, no Photoshop).


Following the presentation of these analyses, aspects of urban living and its foreseeable development will be examined in joint discussions. Finally, the groups are to develop pitches and proposals for possible scenarios, strategies and future approaches and to demonstrate these in concluding presentations (during which the use of AutoCAD and Photoshop will be allowed).
