ECO-CITY ANKARA II: DESIGNING NODES FOR SOCIO-CULTURAL REGENERATION
ECOLOGICAL PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Ecological Performing Arts Center
In the previous semester, the aim of the project was to regenerate the ecological potential of the land as a wetland park and revive the ecosystem. Under the notion of encouraging public transportation, we proposed an urban deck that allows access from train stations and primary bus stops. It provides a circulation network, service spaces, and some activity nodes. Moreover, we proposed a natural habitat corridor which is supported by several corridors such as historical, sport, and rainwater control corridors along the creeks. As a continuity of the previous project, I propose a new cultural corridor along the stream. The project will be a connection between the natural habitat corridor and existing cultural places such as AKM, Gençlik Parkı, Cermodern, CSO, and Painting and Sculpture Museum. In this project, I propose a performing arts center. I divided the program into some categories. The most dominant one is co-working program. The aim is to provide a space that allows people to learn the performing arts together and also perform and practice together. It includes workshops, studios, and a library. The exploration part is for theoretical and practical education and individual practicing purposes. And there is a performance space including a concert hall.
