Place-making is an approach which represents a comprehensive framework in building public places with a major concern of assigning functions in an ongoing process. The major point that place-making distinguishes from the former approaches is underlining the process of making instead of the certain product of design. This thesis is a descriptive study which aims to explain the making process of contemporary practice in Turkey. The perceptions of privacy and publicness concepts in Turkish Culture are different than they are in Western Culture. These two cultures are similarly affected by recent movements against top-down policies which lead commodification of commons. Pressures cause reactions such as Wall Street Occupation and Occupation of Tahrir Square. When we consider Turkey, we see that the place-making process is driven by NGOs and platforms that advocate right to the city similar to worldwide movements. In this thesis place-making process in Turkey is introduced with its traditional background and its contemporary break through. Three types of bottom-up movements are taken as cases that are selected from Istanbul, the primary city of Turkey and under a great pressure of construction. Gezi Park Occupation, Kuzguncuk Farm Reaction and Don Quixote House Occupation and Yeldeğirmeni Neighborhood Revitalization are analyzed through main components of making process; actors, processes and outcomes. It is remarked that place-making process draws a distinct identity rather than the traditional approach to public places and aims to protect commons by advocating right to the city in different social contexts that reflect the complexity of place-making process.
