    unfortunately, no matter how pretty daylight in an airport might be, the whole idea of adding yet another airport to istanbul, especially in the area that houses the last remaining northern forests (that once took up 2/3 of the city and have now been demolished or will be demolished) is nowhere near “green”. istanbul is already an overpopulated metropolis with no real room to grow. artificially stimulating further growth is completely unsustainable. istanbul has long ago exceeded its boundaries, and there is not enough infrastructure in place — and more importantly natural resources left — to support its inhabitants. for more concrete information, i would recommend watching the documentary “ekümenopolis”.
