CARRRE - Collective Action for Readiness, Recovery, and Resilience.
CARRRE combines the resources and talents of internationally-based Turkish architects, urban planners, engineers, and academics to collaborate with similarly situated local professionals, businesses, community organizations, municipalities, and builders on the ground in Turkey and Syria.
“Hatay Planning Center Report” is the fifth panel in CARRRE’s discussion series. In the aftermath of the destruction, the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality joined with the Hatay Metropolitan Muncipality to form the Hatay Planlama Merkezi (the Hatay Planning Center) to address the recovery and reconstruction processes of the province of Hatay, one of the provinces most damaged by the earthquakes. The report examines the challenges and opportunities that arise in connection with the long-term, municipal-level planning initiatives and resilient rebuilding of cities and communities, created with input from administrations, universities, national and international institutions, experts, professional organizations, non-governmental components, volunteers and most importantly, the people of Hatay. The expert panelists who will respond to the report will address post-disaster planning strategies and building techniques, engineering seismology and hazard assessment, and focus on alternative approaches developed for Turkey and other countries.
Four hybrid educational panels are being presented simultaneously at the Center for Architecture (AIANY) and at Salt Beyoglu in Istanbul. We will also be collaborating with Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul.
The hybrid panels took place on July 22, July 29, and September 30. The fourth panel will take place on October 21.
Following the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria on February 6, 2023, CARRRE (Collective Action for Readiness, Recovery, and Resilience), a group of internationally-based Turkish architects, created a platform to deliver a course of educational panels addressing rebuilding after the earthquakes.
