Which interventions have been made ? How successfull were they ? What did / does participation in local context mean ? Whats missing ? How can still be wisely intervened ?" will be essential to the work of this group.Strategies of an alternative physical planning will be explored towards possibilities of a sustainable development based on local traditions in particularly within the music and entertainment sector. Today most locals have to commute to other areas in the city to make a living in the entertainment sector and nightlife, as local entertainment houses were cleansed in the 90s. The past work of the Development Planning Unit / University College of London, last year in Sulukule will also be presented and evaluated within this context. Fener / Balat area, another chapter of gentrification in the historical peninsula by state intervention will be briefly examined as a comparative case study.
