There is a great need of good quality buildings in Turkey. Our president and prime minister has set the targets to solve this issue and we will be focusing on social housing projects in order to support our government to reach their goals.
Transformation from the vertical Architecture to the Landscape Architecture
Mr.Turan mentioned that the idea of transforming from the vertical Architecture to the Landscape Architecture was also on the agenda of 62th government as well. Our city deserves buildings of a high quality. Some say whenever its allowed to build 5 floors , as TOKI, you can build up to 6 , but we will never do that. We will keep on building buildings that add value to our cities and towns.
Close neighborhood concept projects
Mr. Turan continued: At the mean time we are holding a public tender for 2800 buildings based on Close neighborhood concept. Even on TV series we can often see scenes describing old city with its closely neighboring buildings. We have concentrated our work on Kayabashi, Halkali and Bashakshehir. There you can see some great projects but they are lacking the areas where people can socialize. So far we have finished the tender for 2 of such Close neighborhood projects. We’ll plan a street with various socializing centers with cafés, fitness centers, mosques and etc. Each building will be places in a way that its inhabitants may easily interact with each other. Mosques will be placed in the heart of each project, unlike it used to be in the past
