The aim of this competition was to establish a proposal for a center fully equipped with adequate technology and facilities in order to be prepared for a disaster, that may affect Istanbul and to develop public consciousness about the disasters in general and specifically about earthquakes.

On the interior, we created a multi-level space experience having the entire required program connected through a central point that simultaneously receives and guides the public to interact with the building. We also created a progressive cladding concept to the facade that introduces and enhances the Arabic atmosphere while it’s reacting – through density combination and geometrically driven development- to the local environment. check out these renders:
