In 2013, mass protests erupted around Gezi Park in Istanbul after plans emerged to build a shopping centre over the site. "People for the first time… felt the need to collectively defend a public space outside of their neighbourhood", Mücella Yapici of the Chamber of Architects recollects.

This local protest snowballed into a national movement for liberal reform. However, President Erdogan has responded by stepping up the pressure on the opposition. A failed coup attempt in 2016 has given him the excuse to go even further ignoring all constitutional restraints. As purges sweep the nation, thousands of journalists, academics, and civil servants have been fired and even imprisoned.
