Esenler Teknopark South
Location: Esenler, Istanbul
Arch. Imdat As
This techno-park building is the "lighthouse" gateway edifice in the southern part of the Future City project in Esenler, Istanbul. It consists of a science center, various thematic galleries, an incubator, a library and a landmark tower (51.5m high) that houses a planetarium and a viewing platform on the top. The design is based on the Turkish "karniyarik" approach, where major functions are placed around a central core, the "hayat," which constitutes the common space facilitating main activities in the building. The total area is 25,000 sqm.
