Abstract
Recently, particularly in metropolitan cities we are witnessing a fast change through implementation of mega projects. On the one hand, physical formation of cities are going through a change, on the other, new behaviour patterns and consumer moulds are emerging. All these are able to define two different structure which characterise both integration and disintegration between the locals. In this paper, the aim is to discuss the role of urban projects as a political tool as part of this paradoxical process. Therefore, current urban projects in Istanbul’s agenda will be referred to as examples and integration and disintegration concepts will be discussed with reference to the urban space.
