Urban, Urban Design, Urban Quality


The concept of urban design was defined as a narrow civilian design in North America in the 1950s. Thus, ideal urban movement and civil
design have been the subject of the design of public buildings and related spaces in particular. Public housing and coastal sites, organized parks,
small industrial sites, public buildings, bazaars, squares, intersections, business structures are an important part of the urban design process.
These original capital cities, which will be the subject of design, should be addressed in the design process in terms of the proper assessment of
their potential. In this context, raising design quality in urban design is an important input. Urban design as a planning tool is a spatial policy
that designs and sustains urban life at all scales with a search for a form. In this direction, this intermediate scale needs to be utilized in the
planning of our country. Urban design tools, which play an important role in urban development, must be used correctly in order to obtain
quality in urban design. At the same time, for the creation of quality urban spaces, the concept of urban design should be closely related to
issues such as planning and transportation policies, architectural design, economic development and landscape. Within the scope of this study,
evaluations are made considering all the components in order to live, construct and direct the city in a quality way.
