The founders of Urbanwalks.ankara continuing its city walks in cooperation with Ka Atölye, Cem & Cemre, are inviting you to a new event series with great happiness.


“We will discuss the urban space that we have experienced on foot till today, through various historical layers of the city, and its important actors and concepts. With our guests who will join us at every event, we will try to discover the built environment and its contributors together, by keeping you on the edge of our seats.


In our third talk, our guest will be Associate Professor Olgu Çalışkan, faculty member of the Department of City and Regional Planning, Faculty of Architecture, Middle East Technical University. In the centennial of Ankara's becoming the capital, we will discuss the various urban states of the city in theory and practice with him, through the eyes of an urban planner, designer, and academician. While doing this, we will evaluate the urbanization problems and possible solution proposals from a constructive point of view through various examples from the world and Turkey.
