Abstract
Aim: The aim of this study is determining the physical properties of commercial advertising signs such as size, color, shape, etc. on the perception of street landscape and shopping preferences of the people. Methodology: A questionnaire was used with 272 participants to determine the viewpoints of the townspeople on the commercial advertising signs of the shops on the Kışla Street in the city of Malatya. 6 independent variables, gender, marital status, age group, occupation, education and income level, were developed with the purpose of determining the socio-demographic properties of the participants. 7 variables were determined for the purpose of determining the effects of the commercial advertising signs on the shopping preferences and street landscape perception of the participants (dependent variables) were used. The Chi Square Goodness of Fit Test, Chi Square Independence and Chi Square Trend Tests were used to determine the socio-demographic properties that had effects on the dependent variables. Results: When the data obtained after the questionnaire were evaluated, it was observed that commercial advertising signs had an effect on the shopping preferences of people and that this effect was related with the size, color, shape and their being lit or not. In addition, it may also be claimed that the commercial advertising signs on the Kışla Street in the city of Malatya influence the general view of the street and cause chaos. Conclusion: It has been determined that the commercial advertising signs on the Kışla Street in the city of Malatya affects the general view of the street and lead to a chaos in the street. The reason of this negative situation may be considered as the variety and density of the commercial advertising signs on the street. In order to correct this negative situation, aesthetic, specific and ecological urban design projects are needed in which researchers and practitioners from different disciplines who take into consideration the viewpoints, demands and expectations of the users based on participative approach work together for the same purpose.
