The world is facing everyday with disasters and emergencies. We all face the risk of the disasters happening and affecting our lifes.Disasters have happened for millions of years and will continue to happen in the future but the frequency of these disasters is increasing every year all around the globe. Many disasters are becoming more dangerous due partly to climate change and their impact increases intensely. These tragic events cause; loss of lives, damage to environment,to the economy , social and cultural life. The research is based on a possible earthquake scenario of 7.5 mw earthquake that can happen in Istanbul.This case is crucial to analyze the risk and the possible impact that the city of Istanbul will face. Unfortunately, most of the buildings in Istanbul are not safe due to bad quality of materials and poor construction techniques. In a case of 7.5 magnitude earthquake thousands of people will be homeless in just few minutes. The aim is to provide accomadation in a shelter camp for who needs safe living space,referred as a emergency shelter, immediately after the disaster occurs But generally speaking , mostly in the poor countries these emergency shelters are tents or containers that they have no accessibility to electricity or clean water. And people that can not afford new homes end up living in these shelters for a very long time and later these shelters are abandoned to decompose. The shelter camps are often places that survivors don’t feel comfortable or safe.The former Istanbul Airport has been selected to form a shelter camp. Analyzing the lessons learned from the previous disasters ,the intent of the research and design is a sustainable approach for post-disaster emergency response ,shelter ,shelter camp and recovery with the participation of the people.
