The Graduation project invites students to discover the hidden and unrecognizable potentials of a multilayered urban landscape, the city of İznik. Students will be asked to develop a landscape strategy to create an open and green space system that connects two critical edge conditions; the coast and the urban periphery. The proposals need to address the local characteristics and daily life practices of İznik as well as current environmental and urban problems such as climate change, increased population, loss of cultural identity, degradation of historical traces and urbanization process by utilizing urban voids with various programs and advocating contemporary planning and design approaches. The ecological quality of the lake and the coast, the potentials of the periphery as a transition to rural zone and how the proposed strategy provide a setting for the challenging conditions of contemporary life on this historical city will be questioned through the studio.
