Regulatory Framework for Conversion

How can industrial areas be transformed in a world where the ‘circular economy’ concept, which is based on transformation and recycling instead of production, use and waste, is becoming increasingly important? What could be the basic principles of this transformation? How can spaces improve efficiency and livability while developing symbiotic relationships between companies?

The project, which aims to provide a modular intervention framework for the plans to be made for industrial zones, was designed on the example of OSTİM. An intervention framework was determined by defining the intervention forms that can be used according to the purpose of the design. It is aimed to design possible forms of intervention through this framework according to the needs of each building in OSTİM. Thus, the basis for a scenario-based design guide for the restructuring of industrial zones has been revealed.

In the project, ways to enable recycling and mutual harmony (symbiosis) mechanisms through spatial design, by increasing the equipment that will positively affect the safety, livability and productivity of the employees, are examined. It is envisaged that this transformation process, which will be continued with bilateral local relations, will transform the whole area.
