Lecture at (UnUrban): ‘Challenges in green space design in Istanbul’

I also took part in (Un)Urban: Designing for the green city Summer School’ as a lecturer.  Even getting prepared for such a presention on this matter itself has been a challenge for me. How could I summarize the crazy and mega current urban debates on green spaces to the audience who even haven’t been in a country before.

How could I differentiate the green space design from the deforestation issues or how could I filter the impact of mass urbanization and political decisions from the urban struggles and activism. I couldn’t :). Here is the evidence and the video about the presentation:


The lecture was for the 1st and 2nd year students about the ‘Challenges in Designing Green Spaces in Istanbul’. The students have summarized the matters i had been talking about, in their blog post at the following link:
