Spaces are always formed by societies according to the social, economic,

political and belief values of the time. Like buildings, landscapes also take

shape according to different functions and purposes within the scope of

these values. With this study, it is aimed to examine the symbolic and

functional values of the landscape by evaluating the change of the

landscape in the historical process. It has been examined how landscapes

are produced periodically in the history of humanity, depending on the

social, cultural and economic structure. In the study, verbal and visual data

were evaluated in the analysis process by using literature data from

primary and secondary sources, and findings were obtained. According to

the data obtained from the study, although the landscape exists with the

history of humanity, it has evolved from the garden scale designed for

private purposes in the first periods of history to the design of urban areas

for the whole society / arrangement of public lands. Landscape, with its

social, economic and environmental dimensions, has become an indicator

of modernity, which is a solution to the problems of every period. It is seen

that the landscape, which is an integral part of humanity, will continue to

develop and transform within the framework of the interaction in the

context of time-space.

Keywords: Landscape, time-space, transformation.
