Pervin Yeşil, Meltem Melikoğlu Aldeniz


The cemetery areas, which are shaped in line with the beliefs and traditions of every society, are generally idle in our country; they have become places that cannot nourish neither the human soul nor the city of which they once had a memory. However, cemetery areas are considered as a dynamic part of the urban landscape and it is clear that if all the processes are planned correctly from the site selection decision to the final shape it will have, it will have a positive effect on the city. In this context, the current spatial and design conditions of six city cemeteries in Altınordu district in Ordu province were analyzed and a survey study was conducted to learn the expectations of the visitors. In addition, evaluations were made on the need for cemetery in Ordu city center. As a result of the study, it was found that the existing cemeteries have spatial adequacy, but they need appropriate spatial arrangements in order to contribute to urban landscape.
