Depending on life styles changing throughout the history, the nature of public spaces included in provinces has also changed.Public space is the only element that establishes urban articulation in spite of its functionally and morphologically differing features. The public space is an area not distinguishing but bringing people together. Due to sociological and economic reasons arising in postmodern period, city blocks that constitute urban space create privatized areas against urban integrity and public nature of urban. The interfaces that have been created by these planned but segmented city blocks with urban have transformed into a boundary due to their structural and functional features. This situation requires borders to be investigated as a new element of urban articulation. In this period, public spaces has get started to become indoor, homogeneous, private spaces occupied by similar socio-economic groups and physically isolated from other people. Indoor buildings that are the reflection of postmodern urban practices in this sense are important urban elements affecting the nature of the public space in postmodern period. The present study was discuss ed the issue regarding the change in the quality of urban public space, through the case of Göktürk in Istanbul
