Boomtown Atasehir

Since the beginning of the 21st century, the Turkish metropolis faces drastic changes due to the persistant boom. Especially the structure of the city changes: The middle class migrates from the centre to the outskirts due to rising rents and prestige projects. There, again the poorer population is relocated to suburbs up to 80 kilometres away from the city centre. An exemplary link in this chain is the district Atasehir.
