Abstract


The aim of this paper is to re-read and define differentiating layers of the city of Istanbul through critical mappings as an interrogative socio-spatial research. Through this form of a new city read, information on daily urban and social practices, global impacts and urban and economic effects of consumption over space would be exposed among five different thematic constellations rooted from Guy Debord's The Society of the Spectacle. The author aims to clarify socio-spatial constellations over space, time and current trends by deconstructing the current city formation of Istanbul.
