John Dutton’s USC studio focuses on Istanbul master plan


This Spring, John Dutton taught a graduate architecture and landscape studio for USC that used the Eminonu waterfront in historic Istanbul as their site, an area that has been cut-off from the city by an eight-lane highway built in 1984. The students were asked to reconnect Istanbul to it’s waterfront though a master plan that incorporated urban analysis, sustainable agendas, topological context, and open space needs. The site accommodated up to two million people a day passing through it on foot, car, tram, or one of the numerous ferries. It is both part of a traditional network of neighborhoods, as well as a nexus for most tourist traffic.
