STIGMERGIC-SCAPES: AFTER THE REMOVAL OF BODRUM TERMINAL
INTER-AMALGAMATED COAST: A PRODUCTIVE MARINE HABITAT
Inter-Amalgamated Coast: A Productive Marine Habitat
Bodrum’s coastal area including both land and water is almost completely divided into two by a line that is out of concrete. Unfortunately, this line is the existing coastline, and the project titles it as a line of rupture. Also, according to scientific estimations, sea level will increase in Mediterranean coasts including Bodrum because of the tectonic movements. It will create a new coast scape which should not behave as a rupture. Thus, in order to learn how a thing becomes submerged and new scapes can be derived out of submerged things, the project focused on already submerged things, such as shipwrecks. With help of these studies, the idea of a ‘’Coast Wreck’’ in which different scapes of land, water, and coast can emerge together for a productive habitat is proposed. After all, wetlands helped to develop this ‘’inter-amalgamated scapes emerging from the coast wreck’’ idea into a more realistic stage. In short, an infrastructural system that is able to become a part of all these scapes and the wetlands hosting all these scapes enhanced the amalgamation, proposed a program for the city, and worked together for a productive marine and coastal habitat.
