Urban fabric of cities can be formed through their context due to their groundform. We live and experience cities while urban life plays a vital role consisting the urban ground. To be able to find possible ground areas in contemporary cities, urban gaps can be a tool to intervene. Through these intentions, the thesis seeks to examine urban gaps for their potentials of uses of ground types. The research studies how does groundform architecture can establish relationships between infrastructure and landscape links in a contemporary city. Showing how architectural landscape integrates into an urban setting through infrastructure comprises the main motives of the research. With investigating the groundform architecture in an urban context, the thesis proposes series of interventions on an urban scale, with the new activities for these territories of gaps. By generating an urban corridor as a connector through public infrastructure using the existing ground and constructing a new ground that functions together, the proposal stitches the gap made between the urban fabric and the waterfront in the focused area, Halic, Istanbul with the aim of reactivating the ground.
