Beykoz River Urban Design Project
|Client:||Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality|
Our design creates a uniting public space that connects the surrounding urban fabric and the river corridor and creates a stage for different activities to bring different segments of society. Historically, the river corridor and its adjacent meadow were the centers of social cohesion albeit lost its importance in the cultural scene in the 20th century. Therefore, we aim to restore the ecological qualities of the historic river corridor while seeking ways to embrace the social content and facilitate community development through landscape design.
