REFUNCTIONALISATION POSSIBILITIES OF RETIRED KONYA CITY’S TRAMS

The importance of transportation in human life is increasing day by day. Even the level of development of states is measured by the level of development of the transportation system. For this reason, the production of transportation vehicles is also increasing. Trends modifications, developments in technology, increase in needs, aging and so on, bring along the change of these manufactured vehicles with new ones. Most of the retired vehicles are transferred to recycling. Then its reborn in the production of new transportation vehicles. This and similar reuse cycles are needed and inevitable, in most cases should actually be. In this paper, authors created an emotional chain between Konya City and the old trams by telling some important memories in history and try to encourage to reuse them in a way that adds new values to Konya and its community. I will try to put new functions to retired trams by leaving the old ones. I will use the sampling method by giving some examples of the reuse of old trams as architecture from around the world. In the end, I will use my own experience to give simple schematic plans and re-implement the old trams of Konya. I hope you will find my work useful
