STIGMERGIC-SCAPES: AFTER THE REMOVAL OF BODRUM TERMINAL
INJECTING COLORS: REVITALIZING NEIGHBORHOODS
Injecting Colors: Revitalizing Neighborhoods
Bodrum has hosted many historical events over time and that made this region multi- layered in many respects. Today, touristic uses dominate the region, which plays an important role in transforming the town into today’s condition. Considering Bodrum’s needs, problems, potentials and values, the research is focused on possible stigmergic occasions after the bus terminal in the town is removed. Although Bodrum is corrupt for touristic purposes, the project proposes an environment that brings back the feeling of the neighborhood to the city (which is absent for the moment) by fully accepting that everyone has the “Right to Be Lazy” and by understanding the essentials of the strong community. The spatial injections have a derivation according to programmatic and spatial relations. Both the positional and structural flexibility of the project has the power to revitalize Bodrum life in a productive way.
