Rationale: Why is this case interesting?

Mogan Park landscape project is interesting for me about the participation dimension because of being a typical case in Turkey. It is a small scale project but the experiences faced during the project preparations, design and implementation show the state of art on participation in Turkey. It is a simple but good example to understand the weaknesses and threats on participatory approaches for planning and management of landscape in Turkey.
