Within the scope of the master's thesis titled "Power and the Capital: Urbanism in Ankara in the Framework of Change and Continuity (1946-1960)", the framework of the changes and continuities that Ankara went through in terms of urbanism was tried to be drawn with the transition to multi-party life and then the coming to power of the Democrat Party. For this purpose, a comparative study was carried out with the Republican People's Party government. Throughout the study, it has been accepted that the political characters of the governments are reflected in the capitals and can be indirectly read through the capitals. Ankara has been designed as the symbolic display area of the success of the republican regime from the moment it was declared the capital. This fiction was created by the founding party of the country, the Republican People's Party, and was shaped by the same government for years. The approach of the Democrat Party, which came to power as of 1950, to the capital Ankara has changed or been continuous with the CHP administration in various aspects. While these criteria were being questioned, the main axis of the city was based on Atatürk Boulevard and concentrated on Ulus and Kızılay centers. In addition, although there are extensive studies on Ankara before 1950 in the general literature, the relative inadequacy of the studies after 1950 has been tried to be eliminated. While examining the change and continuities, on the one hand, the urban planning activities of the Democrat Party government in Ankara were revealed.
