This paper aims to highlight the spatial distribution and locational criteria of cultural and creative industries rising as strategic urban management tools in Istanbul.
In the scope of the research, to gain insight into the cultural/creative industries, in-depth analysis was conducted to investigate the locational choices and spatial distribution of such industries. Furthermore, to demonstrate the existing pattern of the cultural/creative sectors in the city, site analysis and extensive interviews were held in Beyoğlu where an agglomeration has existed since the 19th century. The case-study results demonstrate the relationship between place and creative production, and the role of place in the location preferences of these industries. The outcome of the research will contribute to further studies on these industries and will influence the future strategies of Istanbul Greater Municipality and how
it develops cultural/creative industries.
