The term “urban transformation” is on the agenda of the world and became the new face of our cities, from San Francisco to Tokyo, from Berlin to İstanbul. Urban transformation is not a random process. On contrary as being  spatial form of a universal “civilization project”, it is institutionalised. From this point of view, what we see in İstanbul and Turkey in general is not surprising, contrarily it is the application of an existing model. Nevertheless, not being surprised by the application is not an obstacle for a suspicious approach to urban transformation in Turkey.
