Million Dollar View, Urban Transformation
Menekse beach in Kucukcekmece district on European side of Istanbul. Istanbul became a migration receiving metropolis with the rapid growth after 1980s. Population of the city is estimated approximately 14 millions in 2011 which was around 3 million in the beginning of the 80s. The city started to spread out from the center to the borders with the increasing housing requirements and sheltering problems but actual governmental policies of urban transformation are primarily profit-oriented rather than humanistic.
