MAPPING ISTANBUL

Istanbul, as seen through social and physical maps. Edited by Pelin Derviş and Meriç Öner. Published by Garanti Gallery, Istanbul, 2009.

Mapping Istanbul examines Istanbul’s current boundaries through maps, comparative research and various texts. The book first determines the specific places Istanbul occupies - both in Turkey and the world - vis-à-vis connectivity, demographics and economics. It then analyzes the city’s structure within the framework of headings that are of crucial importance to present-day Istanbul: population and density, economic activity, employment, education, land utilization, transportation, earthquakes, housing, health, social infrastructure, consumption, water, waste and energy.
