Istanbul – the host city

Istanbul

Istanbul has been experiencing a rapid increase in population due to migration. This means a very fast urban transformation process is taking place in the Mediterranean metropolis straddling two continents. One of the main challenges of Istanbul´s green policy is increasing the number of green areas within the whole city. Desired economic growth and rising land prices on the one hand, and the need for green infrastructure for urban quality of living and sustainable urban development on the other hand have drawn attention to the city`s rooftops. Istanbul is therefore the perfect choice of location to present the current status of Green Roofs and to discuss its connection with modern architectural concepts and urban planning solutions.

 

 

Zorlu Center – the congress surroundings

Green roof

The Zorlu Center, a dynamic and impressive gateway, redefines the experience of contemporary life in the urban core. The mixed-use project with wide public spaces and grand-scale buildings, elements of urban and architectural quality that create a modern city in the 21st century, is a landmark at the European crossing point. With green spaces extending 72.000 m², the Center provides a home for 200 plant species including 68 different types of trees.
