Abstract


URBAN REGENERATION AND PLACE ATTACHMENT

The urban problems that emerged in our country as a result of rapid urbanization since the 1980s brought the concept of urban transformation together. Areas that have lost value in terms of physical and environmental characteristics and are broken from the city; renewal, rehabilitation, conservation, revitalization, redevelopment, improvement, clearance, regeneration, upgrading of qualifications and gentrification. Urban transformation includes physical, social, economic and legal aspects. In this process, which is perceived as more physical renewal in our country, social dimension is very important. In this aspect, in urban transformations, it is important to consider the social environment, ie the users who live there, rather than the physical environment. Studies that do not take into account the local context are transformed into positions where relationships, experiences, and most important sense of belonging do not occur, negatively affecting social construction. For this reason, this study focuses on the importance of attachment feelings, dimensions and indicators in urban transformation studies.
