The city is the embodiment of the behavior patterns created by the inhabitants living in a geography in centuries within the frame of needs and consumption habits in the center of the resources and climate of this geography. The city should be capable of meeting all the needs of the city dwellers.
CITY INSTITUTIONS APPROACH
THE RESOURCES, LEGAL ACQUIS OF THE CITY
The first element defining the city is knowledge: the geography, climate and natural resources of the city. The second element is income: It is the values developed by the city in time such as professions and trade centers, internal relations and procedures, arts and crafts. In other words, it is the acquis of the city. The concepts which are ancient in their contents and point to the post-eternity (defined facts) are the originals of the acquis. The acquis of the city constantly develops on ancient concepts with stages. The cities which lose their stages for the change, are scattered.
WEALTH OF THE CITY
The wealth of the cities is the degree of the services, products and works formed by the consumption habits of the city dwellers in proportion to the city’s resources and the acquis.
INSTITUTIONS OF THE CITY
The city’s acquis and resources are the constants of the city. These constants gather in city’s institutions in which the behavior patterns of the city are formed, developed and shared. The city’s constants (institutions) are the decision-making places of the city.
THE FLOW OF THE CITY AND THE CYCLES
The movements progressing from constants to products and works, from products and works to consumption habits constitute the “city flow”. The city flow creates the cycle (s) within the framework of the needs of the city dwellers. On the other hand, while these cycles meet the current needs of the city-dwellers, they also develop the city acquis. Thus, the city develops in the form that meet the changing needs of the city.
CITY, CUSTOM AND PEACE
The cycles turn the city into a center of attraction over time and the city’s richness integrates with the richness of other cities in the flow of intertwined cycles. Because in every city there are acquis and similar cycles that produce richness for different needs with different constants.
Meetings and relations of cities that produce wealth with different acquis and resources cause them to share and know common values in time – naturally and this status (development of custom) is the source of peace.
CITY AND CONSUMPTION HABITS
The custom is pleasant and penetrates the patterns of behavior of city dwellers, forms the city’s consumption habits and appears as pleasure and grace in the products, services and works of the city. It becomes conceptualized, rooted and forms the principal of the city in every field.
CONSUMPTION HABITS AND ADDICTION RELATIONS
Dependency means non-willful desire. It’s related with the pleasure. Today, although pleasure and desire are used as synonyms, there is a deep difference between them. Pleasure refers to fine elaboration, patience and brewing, result/satisfaction. It’s part of the custom. The pleasure refers to the quicker satisfaction, the greater desire satisfaction each time. In this case, the results come before the procedure; even the procedure becomes meaningless because there is no energy for steep. Pleasure sacrifices the acquis. Needs turn into competition field with unlimited approach and the resources turn into competition field with the limited approach, not the city unity field.
Custom leaves its place to darkness and the peace is destroyed.Pleasure instead of desire, speed instead of patient, moment instead of doom, respect to newcomer instead of constant makes all the constants of the city meaninglesses. The flow of the city is disrupted. The ancient centers of the city are no longer a place of decision and are sacrificed.
THE CHARACTER OF THE CITY
The scattering in an unpredictable and unpredictable environment turns the barrel house including the remains of city and the pleasure centers into the city’s constants. Ancient constants (now referred to as old / historical) remain outside the flow and cycles of the city as a display element that must be protected. People living in the city are not city dwellers any more but become those who are employed in the city. In other words, they turn into the janitors of the city. Because they sacrificed the acquis in the name of pleasure, speed and comfort, which enables him to have a profession and a quarry, and create wealth with their own resources. The city loses its personality.
Cities without personality (1) lose the Acquis, where the dwellers of the city can satisfy the need for self-realization, (2) the city dwellers lose their respect to the city, then to each other, (3) the city dwellers get away from each other, the need for socialization cannot be met (4) security and reliability disappears, (5) even the supply of everyday needs is hardly met.
CITY INSTITUTIONS AND ŞEHREMİNİ
The acquis of cities is manifested and occurs in city institutions (institute). Whether the municipality, the governor or a professional organization, they cannot mobilize the city’s resources
- Without knowing and understanding the city’s acquis,
- The institution cannot efficiently manage its own resources,
- It can’t cooperate with other institutions of the city,
- It tries to create satisfaction for service by employing others,
- It is worn out in artificial competition and conflicts created in the city,
- Its activities do not feed the acquis, they are lost in dispersed activities.
- As an unpredictable institution, it becomes the source of concern, not trust, with its unknown activities.
However, the city institutions are the decision-making centers of the city and their activities must form integration. City institutions can transform the resources defined for their activities and turn them into a wealth for city dwellers by mobilizing the city acquis. For this purpose, a project design based on the cooperation instead of competition between city institutions, is required.
Regardless of the institution, through the accumulation of 15 years, Şehremini has developed working methods in which other institutions of the city can work as a party in all projects. Şehremini produces the information needed by the institutions and the city through the analysis of the acquis of the city and institutions, makes studies on how the city expectations can be met with the city’s acquis and by what methods. It develops management models in accordance with the legislation which will ensure and strengthen the day of auditing and intervention of the leaders and managers of the city institutions determined by the law.
Especially in order to overcome the difficulties in the production of resources and resources management of the city institutions, it works to mobilize the resources of the city and develops projects.
