This ten-story mall building in Denizli
was located on a site where even a two-
story shopping mall had previously
been unsuccessful. The whole structure
is sloped. The Babadaglilar shopping
mall has been a successful facility for
the last 35 years, becoming a symbol of
the city.

The International Industry and Trade
Bank (Bakırköy branch) is situated
on the corner of two narrow streets,
projecting its interiors onto the street

of interior and exterior sensations.
The project used exposed concrete;
its outer walls were designed to collect
heat in winter and to insulate against
the heat in the summer.

This lot, measuring somewhere in the
region of 21,500 sq ft (2,000 square
metres), is located in Göltürkbükü, on
the Bodrum peninsula. The Gulsema-
Lutz were a couple living in England.
The brief was to design a building to
be used as a summer house for several
years and then as a permanent
residence. Like any typical Bodrum
house, this house was designed around
a living space of a kitchen with a
fireplace opening out to a terrace
through sliding glass doors. This space
can be enclosed in winter by simply
closing the doors. The morning sunlight
floods into the house, however the
house turns its back on the unbearably
hot midday summer sun and any noise
from the road. The bedroom is one
floor up, surrounded by a roof garden.
The whole roof is garden space.

The Olbia Social Centre is the socio-
cultural complex of the Akdeniz
University in Antalya. Uninterrupted
pergolas follow the lines of the slopes.
The spaces flow into each other. This
construction is shaded by greenery
and offers multifunctional uses. The
materials utilized were wood and
the travertine stone that was unearthed
when the foundations were dug. The
walls have been left unplastered.

Mersin, once a small city with 100,000
inhabitants, has experienced a
population boom. It is now over ten
times that size. This building was built
on a former brown site and has easy
access from the ring road. It has been
designed to represent the growth of
the city center. Located on one side
of the skyscraper, the shops are all
arranged on a circular slope, enabling
car access to the top floors. In the
centre of the shopping area there is
a pool, and in the middle of the pool a
stage: a space for a theater. Below the
pool there is a multifunctional space
containing a theater, concert hall,
registry office, etc. All the spaces flow
into each other. Underground there
are three floors of car parking.
0447
The lot of Halil Bektas primary school
is situated in a built-up area. Wherever
possible the building has been
designed to open up in the direction
it is faces: south-south-east. This
gives the classrooms suitable lighting.
The design aims to show reality to the
children: pipes are left exposed, and
casing has not been used to hide
elements.
0451
The Afrodisias museum extension has
been designed as a steel construction
built on piles. The piles do not touch
any remains of the ancient walls, and
no trees were cut down. Visitors can
walk underneath the structure and see
everything. The walls and roof have two
ventilation layers.
