Abstract

This chapter evaluates the Istanbul Historical Peninsula, which has been the historical, cultural, and financial core of the city, in its quest for becoming smart(er) with reference to the five principles that are put forth by Mitchell, in his 1999 book e-topia. The chapter aims to define the role of ICTs in urban planning and management of Istanbul Historical Peninsula by depicting its fields of use in redesigning the societal, financial, and cultural aspects of urban life in the area. Additionally, the transformative feature of these technologies, used in urban planning, conservation, and heritage management, will be validated whether they serve for a vision and a strategic framework of transitioning the community into an information society.
