Pınar Gültekin, from Düzce University Faculty of Forestry Department of Landscape Architecture received a grant to participate in the Conference “Culture in Urban Space Urban Form, Cultural Landscapes, Life in the City”, held between 3-7 February 2020, in Malmö, Sweden.

Paper presented: Middle-class Mass Housing Site Selection Using GIS in Düzce, Turkey.

Abstract:

This study aims to determine the most suitable areas for middle-class mass housing for the future planning of Düzce, Turkey through use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Natural and cultural landscape elements have been gathered into thematic maps (topography, geology, soil, land cover, transportation, settlement, hydrology) using the ArcGIS 10.1 program, which is GIS software. Selection criteria for middle-class mass housing were then developed. Then suitability and sensitivity analyses were conducted. User profile, proximity to public institutions and work spaces, mass housing outdoor use, etc. data were also included in the analysis. As a result of the analyses, three classes of mass-housing locations in the study area were defined as very suitable, suitable, and unsuitable.

Pınar Gültekin enjoyed the opportunity to broaden her network as she plans to continue her research in mass housing:

After this conference I’m planning to study about mass housing landscape design efficiency in Turkey.”
