ITU Bostan Landscape Design
Designed as another link to Istanbul Technical University’s Green Campus project, ITU Central Classrooms Annex Building Surrounding and ITU Bostan Project treats the landscape as a socio-ecological system. ITU Bostan Project demonstrates the historic vegetable and flower gardening tradition to the campus users. In this context, while creating a productive landscape, it enables campus users to create something collectively, to share them and to communicate with each other and with nature. It provides different seating and relaxation areas and outdoor diversity around the central classrooms. As a component of the green campus, it aims to harvest rainwater in the area and to water the garden with the collected water. Located in the campus as close to the dormitories and the ITU lake, ITU Bostan offers many ecosystem services both socially and ecologically and will be the new center of attraction of the campus both in the daytime and in the evening.
