Housing reconstruction after earthquakes is a crucial issue because of physical, social, psychological and environmental effects. However, natural disasters may also cause the generation of physical, social and economic models that can realize urban and rural renewal in the settlement. Therefore, an improved strategy is the key to accelerate the reconstruction process for upgrading condition of human settlements. This paper examines the housing reconstruction process carried out in Duzce city that was heavily damaged by the Marmara Earthquake of 17 August 1999 and latterly Duzce Earthquake on November 12 1999. Priority of the Turkish government can be summarised as: firstly, physical reconstruction by means of reconstructing or improving the existing infrastructure and superstructure of the city as soon as possible and secondly, construction of houses for house owners only. The social and psychological situation of the affected population seemed to be not clearly considered in all reconstruction phases. In this study the problem of sheltering and housing after the disaster is determined and evaluated from emergency shelter to temporary housing and permanent housing in case of Duzce. For this purpose, primarily interviews are made with the administrators. Latterly questionnaires were conducted to determine users' expectation level about the shelters, housing units and their environment. Permanent housing projects are comparatively analysed according to the community participation level. Post disaster housing implementations are studied in a broad view including social, psychological and environmental variables. This study aims to assist design and planning guidelines for future housing project implementations.
