Ctrl-Space Istanbul Community Market Competition, Honorable Mention

Project Team:
Erin Day, Hana Lemseffer, Kirill Volchinskiy, and Eda Yetim

This project was commended by the Jury as providing an interesting and meaningful solution in light of the recent sociopolitical context of Istanbul. By the series of questions posed, the scope of the project has been extended and serious considerations – about the Site, the inherent archeological value, political and urban perspectives, the city’s past and future – have been made.
The value in this proposal resides in the alternative outlook over the public space as well as integrating the historical aspect of the site in an innovative way.
