We have a dream for Diyarbakır... The city and university,
where the Tigris Valley is not only preserved but developed, thousands of
species live together, species grow without fear of extinction, children play
at the foot of the walls, people can live by feeling nature so close to the
city, walk around proudly, We are imagining a valley that brings together the
citizens of the city and the university.
Eco-Link is a conservation proposal. Eko Vineyard is an
ecologically-based connective-combining mega landscape element that makes every
part of the valley accessible, and protects the valley from illegal structures
and unauthorized uses, while carrying all the equipment such as lighting,
bicycle path, jogging path, benches, water, services. The inaccessible valley
for the city dweller is recreated with Eko-Bağ. Eco-Bag makes every point of
the valley accessible and protects the valley by wrapping it like a membrane with
its buffer green areas. Eco-Link does not isolate positive values, but breaks
off from the ground in places, allowing plant species and wild animals to
maintain uninterrupted relations with the valley.
In order to open the valley for human use, it does not
excavate in hundreds of square meters, does not harden the surface of the
valley, but does not treat the valley as a simple park arrangement. He wanders
in the valley. Protects natural life. It enables people to reach any point of
the valley and offers the services they need. It sets the valley free. This is
a new model of the human-nature relationship.
