ITU Faculty of Life Sciences and Literature Square

Location:Ayazaga, Istanbul
Site:5,000 m²
Client:ITU Rectorate

The entrance square of the Literature and Life Sciences Building was covered by an asphalt surface parking lot, hence causing urban heat island and lack of social gathering space.  The site has been converted to a square that supports a number of outdoor education and pass-time activities, social interactions, and environmental services.  Green patches on the square collect surface water; planted roofs provide insulation while proposing aesthetic properties; a shaded alley enables comfortable walk to reach the classes.
