This content is available both in English and Turkish.
Platform of Support for Local Initiatives (DESTEK: Democracy, Economy, Society, Tactics, Equality and Key-participants) was established upon the principle that everything “should not be expected from the public sector”. The call for “how new living areas should be designed” by DESTEK Volunteers was discussed by 60 volunteers in various environments with wide participation and Voluntary Based On-Site Regeneration model was recommended.
The 3BLOCKS1BLOCK program has been designed on the basis of 4 basic incentives.
1. Merging Bonus
2. Street Widening Bonus
3. Public Space Bonus
4. Parking Bonus
The design, organization, financing, construction and legal components of the model developed by DESTEK (SUPPORT) volunteers are being discussed in workshops. The “3BLOCKS1BLOCK Program” has been tested for one year by domestic and international designers in 17 building blocks in 13 districts of Istanbul.
