Özet

Infrastructure networks have always been the primary feature of urbanism. As with any aspects of urban environments, the understanding of infrastructure networks and their practices have witnessed changes due to the shifts first to the modernist ideal and then to the globalised world view. In opposition to the former fragmented nature of infrastructure networks, modern urbanism proposed centralised, standardised and ordered planning of infrastructures. However, this coherent understanding is abandoned as globalisation and its economic organisation trigger liberalisation and privatisation of infrastructure, which leads to 'splintering urbanism', a term coined by Graham and Marvin (2001). In addition to these developments, the process of deindustrialisation converted the industrial sites of modern planning into problematic urban areas. Industries were moved away and networks that once served to integrate these areas were decayed, became obsolete and started to split urban areas. These changing urban conditions demand new spatial configurations.
