ON THE EDGE OF THE CITY: A CREATIVE CENTER AT THE PORT OF IZMIR
IZMIR'S PERFORMANCE CENTER NEARBY SEA
Izmir's Performance Center Nearby Sea
As analysed in previous semester, the continuity through the sea is interrupted with the presence of the port. Last semester, group work solved this interruption with changing the port’s footprint. The idea that come from last semester’s work underlie the aim of the project. In order to increase the city’s relationship with the sea, the port area was designed in such a way that traces perpendicular to sea is seen along the coast. Likewise, to increase the city’s relationship with the sea and to meet the citizens with this coast that was previously inaccessible, the main axis was designed. And it ends up with a landmark where it meets the sea. This landmark should be a culture center. This semester, the area that is intended to be a culture center will be designed as Performance Center. This performance center include mainly theatre and concert halls.
