Gathering and Temporary Shelter Areas have an important place in the context of landscape architecture discipline in order to protect people who have become victims after any disaster, especially earthquakes, in Istanbul city and to ensure that they run their lives to certain standards.

While these areas, which should be designed as hybrid areas, are social spaces that do not make people feel the risk of disasters in daily life, these areas should be transformed into multifunctional places that can provide all kinds of support to people in any emergency.

The expectation from students in this studio is to design a self-sufficient, sustainable, planned meeting area and temporary shelter area that will work both in emergencies and daily situations in certain areas of Istanbul.
