The subject of the study is the Dardanos Bastion and Hasan Mevsuf Martyrdom, which are
located on the Anatolian coast of the Dardanelles Strait and played an important role in the First World
War, the Dardanelles front. In the study, it is aimed to examine the bastion and the martyrdom and to
bring a new landscape design proposal to the area in line with today's needs. For this purpose, the current
situation of the area has been analyzed with all its environmental characteristics, structural and plant
elements have been examined on-site, and problems and needs have been determined. Considering the
characteristics of the area, ecological landscape design was made in a contemporary approach.
Considering the location of the region to the Dardanelles Strait, a glass viewing terrace was designed for
the purpose of viewing the landscape. In the design, attention was paid to the selection of plant species
suitable for growing in the ecological characteristics of the region, and a rain garden was designed in the
entrance section of the martyrdom area, where rainwater is use defectively. As a result of the study, the
plan image and three-dimensional visuals of the proposed landscape design are given.
