Dalaman International Airport Terminal
in Mug˘la, Turkey, strives to tackle the
boredom and feeling of emptiness of
terminal buildings and the conventions
of international airport buildings. The
main inputs were the regions rich
landscape, climatic characteristics, and
differentiating features of its tourism
activities. A simple shading instrument,
which is quite common in vernacular
architecture in the region, was used as
a secondary roof in order to create a
holistic serenity through its regular
repetition along the fragmented
masses.

Constructed on the outskirts of Edirne,
the main inputs of the factory building
were the technical descriptions of the
cyclic relations of production, the
limited size of the lot, service and main
road connections, and local building
techniques.
Nispetiye Cad. 112/2

The objective behind the Kag˘ıthane
office project was to avoid a generic
tabula rasa building, created without
taking into account the location and its
relationship to social and physical
structures. The aim was to create a
building that emphasizes its context,
taking into account the other buildings
in the area as architectural reference
points as well as exploiting regional
publicity opportunities, while satisfying
capitalist expectations.
0795
Instead of dispersed units, a large
mass was formed, housing both
production and administration
functions. Linear gardens were
placed between the production and
administration spaces, as spaces to
be used by the staff during breaks.
0794
This high-rise building, designed to be
located on one of the most crowded
housing zones in Istanbul, aimed to
reinterpret the customary living
conditions in tower-residences by
proposing a rationale for a type of
vertical city. The building establishes its
relationship with the surrounding built
environment through references to the
mass fragmentation of the scales of
those buildings. It vertically echoes the
horizontal relationships between the
existing buildings by means of inner
voids and terraces.

As a high-rise building experiment
enriched by inner voids and vertical
gardens, the Maslak No.1 office building
is a kind of reaction to the current
custom of building towers defined as
standard office spaces, planned around
a rational core and glazed facade
systems. The building was designed
taking into account how it will be
experienced from inside and how it is
perceived from outside, Maslak No. 1
awaits the day it will be built on the
most crowded business axis of Istanbul.
0798
In the design process of this cultural
center building, which will be built in
Yalova city, the aim was to establish a
relationship between the building and
the city while avoiding a deductive
and instructive design tendency that
can appear at any moment and in any
place, as an easy contemporary
architectural trap to fall into.
0797
All of the apartments were fronted
toward the Bosphorous panorama.
Their northern façades are celestial
gardens protected by means of vertical
and horizontal circulations; sunlight
and fresh air enter in a controlled
manner and each mass has its own
unique character.

During the renovation of old
Silahtaraga Power Plant, a typical
modern industrial setting formed
between 1910s and 1950s, two large
boiler houses were demolished and
rebuilt on the footprints of former
buildings as a contemporary art
center. The most prevalent design
principle was to integrate them into
the setting without engaging them
with a specific time segment, in
contrast to habitual aim to create
contemporary structure, containing
only the current architectural
specifications while being disconnected
from the historical context.
0799
The voids between the masses and the
promenade are designed to form part
of the city’s social life, providing
“indoor streets” where passersby can
view digital media exhibitions that
change every three months and which
are displayed on the surfaces of the
interior masses, and to create café and
restaurant spaces. In this way the
builder has aimed to avoid telling users
how to absorb the culture through the
structure he placed in “this” setting.
