It is necessary to develop a multidisciplinary approach in the sense of creating earthquake sensitive urban areas, though the decisions made by the urban planners are considered as prior. In its basis, urban planning process begins with the geological and geotechnical etudes and continues with planning and land use decision-making within the context of implementation plans. Then, design and construction processes follow those stages. In the period of whole procedure; urban planners, geological engineers, designers, architects, civil engineers and the other related professionals should be included in order to take a common approach. The contributions and the tasks of those disciplines to create earthquake resistant cities vary. In this study, a systematical theoretic perspective in the context of creating earthquake sensitive cities in a multidisciplinary way will be developed. Within this scope, the deficiencies and the necessity of the multidisciplinary collaboration in the implementation sense will be discussed.
