ON THE EDGE OF THE CITY: A CREATIVE CENTER AT THE PORT OF IZMIR
URBAN EXTENSION | A PROPOSAL OF A CRUISE PORT OF IZMIR
Urban Extension | A proposal of a cruise port of Izmir
Locating in a very strategic place in Izmir, the current cruise port is highly inaccessible and with it’s dilapidated buildings it can’t satisfy the future capacity demand of the incoming tourists. By having a meaningful end to the Kordon and to regain that area back to Izmirians again, this project aims to create new connections with the city, by proposig an urban square along with the sea square, public recreation areas and as an alternative connection a pedestrian-bicycle oriented bridge. In addition to that, the capacity of the cruise port have been increased to host 5 ships at the same time when the weather is in good conditions.
