In recent years, vast urban areas have undergone radical and rapid transformations in Turkey: gecekondus have been demolished at the same speed as malls and condominiums have been built. How do the public authorities dealing with urban planning envision this new city? This presentation deconstructs the public authorities’ discourse on urban change/ kentsel dőnűşűm. Special emphasis will be given to the discursive mechanisms that legitimize urban actions.
