OODA’s Disaster prevention and Education Center in Istanbul
Portuguese firm OODA designed a proposal for the ‘Istanbul Disaster prevention and Education Center‘ international design competition.
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.
More Test from OODA: “For this unique equipment, our proposal approach tries to merge the most efficient program articulation with a strong concept which intends to suggest the overall theme integrated with Istanbul’s context.
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:
