The forces in our world have not been as effective on humanity as water. The world is covered

with a hundred percent water; from the smallest living thing to the largest living thing, each of

them is made to live by water. It is not possible that you have a life without water. It is not only

influenced by living beings, but also on the inanimate environment. The disintegration of the

rocks is the result of soil, the plants that are formed by the seeds being thrown into life, again by

water. Throughout history, streamlines are important to people and life has begun to shape

around water. In this context it is known that the first civilizations were built between the Nile

and Euphrates rivers. As well as the environmental factors in the water affect the designs for

human use; water usage in the design is greatly influencing. Sometimes it is an obstacle and

sometimes the unifying water elements; Today, cities are used for recreational purposes, social

activities and ecological regulations. The water that presents life to the city satisfies their spiritual

needs by giving peace to the people. It turns into watery places and people; the shores that offer

the opportunity to see, touch, hearing, and the forms of these shores differ in their use. Urban

water, a natural element, is still influenced by the natural elements and the environment. The

characteristics of the area where the water is located, the type of climate, the presence of the

shores surrounding the water reveal limitations and variations for the use of the human being.

In our country, there are cities that are ripe and small, with rivers and arms. There are streaming

arms which are used and not used in this presence. The aim of this study is to show how the

coastal designs of rivers and tributaries selected from different climatic regions have an impact

on the people who experience these areas and the factors that affect the use of these areas. In

these factors, it has been analyzed how the urbanization of the cities and the use of the rivers in

the city changed. As marine cities and terrestrial cities belonging to different regions in order to

be able to identify the environmental influences of climate types; Istanbul GÜksu Stream, Adana

Seyhan and Eskisehir Porsuk, and Amasya Yesilirmak are selected as the study area. By

determining the forms, design and effects of coastal use of the selected areas; it is expressed how

the water matter will be shaped in the city and how the elements affecting it change according

to what.
