"What is the structure of street markets in İstanbul?" design|research


The nomadic economies of Asian and African origin in Anatolia and Eastern Europe are responsible for a number of urban phenomena that exist in Turkey today. Specifically these are the resilient remnants of a type of nomadic civilization that had been active in this transitional geography for more then 3000 years. Today it is possible to map out a number of unique urban forms that retain structural and performative aspects of premodern nomad civilization in and around Anatolia and Istanbul.

The importance of the pazar’s endurance as a common urban archetype in the fabric of Istanbul is in its intensification of existing open-space resources, its impromptu cooperative structures, and the rhythmic, yet ephemeral, animation of urban neighborhood’s public space. Everything that is used to create the ‘market-place’ for a day comes and then goes only for the duration of purpose. It generates value for the city in social public-space, income, and resident’s access to affordable daily goods. It makes no pretension to exclude different social class nor become permanent. Its structures are simple and timeless, yet use sophisticated structural forces we are only now beginning to understand in the design of permanent structures. And, although there is no sign posting, flyers, or advertisement, it relies on social networks and neighborhood wordof-mouth to learn the locations, best vendors, and the day of the event. design|research

Yoshiko Tsuruta continues her academic work on the use of markets and street markets and their urban impact in Turkey which she has regularly visited since 1995. She has also collaborated with Turkish universities on projects in smallerscale settlements outside Istanbul like Mudurnu and Goynuk. She develops various projects with designers to contribute to the sustainability of street markets in Istanbul.

If we start to delve into these structures, we become performers of these event structures that make us equally a part of this chain of movement and happening. In other words, the generative aspects of the urban forms that we are following can be articulated by a series of technological designs based initially on patterns and tectonics of human habitation. In this way without having to copy nature we can generate structural and tactical solutions that collapse form and tectonics at the architectural level through the capabilities of contemporary computational thinking merged these premodern practice.

The pazar has not lost its relevance in the contemporary fabric of Istanbul and its minimalism delights our imaginations for other means to transform the existing open-space infrastructure into theatrical public-space. design|research

"What is the structure of street markets in İstanbul?" 90 talks @ SALT beyoğlu | 17 12 2011 | Alexis ŞANAL

How can urban design engender the Pazar’s timeless transformation of open space for other re-purposing: work, play, gather, recreation? How can the tectonic sophistication of the Pazar be used as a parametric system for other place-making environments? Which other market places could formalize this practice past novelty into the rhythm of the city or travel in the spirit of the Anatolian pazars? What type of social organization is required to advance these practices?
