Deniz Göktürk, Levent Soysal, İpek Türeli
Taylor & Francis, Jul 2, 2010 - Architecture - 336 pages
Looking at the globalization, urban regeneration, arts events and cultural spectacles, this book considers a city not until now included in the global city debate.
Divided into five parts, each preceded by an editorial introduction, this book is an interdisciplinary study of an iconic city, a city facing conflicting social, political and cultural pressures in its search for a place in Europe and on the world stage in the twenty-first century.
