STIGMERGIC-SCAPES: AFTER THE REMOVAL OF BODRUM TERMINAL
CITY OF / FOR DEMOCRACY: A FORUM FOR NGOS IN BODRUM
City of / for Democracy: A Forum for NGOs in Bodrum
Bodrum has a very well designed architectural background. The starting point of the proposal the ancient Halicarnassus. There are four main bands in ancient Halicarnassus which are social, economical and architectural borders. The site is located at the junction point of extensions of Decumanus Maximus and Cardo Maximıus, and it hosts traces of many important places and relationships. On the other hand, there is an excessive number of NGOs in Bodrum. Also, a high percentage of the population living in Bodrum are members of at least one NGO. This situation creates a partnership and sharing between NGOs and creates a "community". The proposal is to design a space for community of various NGOs. Producing, protesting, and discussing are the main program of this common space. Ruins in the site become references to design a forum space for contemporary NGOs. The ground is considered as a thick volume that has also become a reference to accommodate different productive functions.
