SELCUK 
CULTURE CENTER

Undoubtedly, the most valuable component of urban culture that has developed organically over thousands of years is the culture of public space.

However, the cities of our century – especially those of our country – have great difficulty in going beyond the coexistence of structures/spaces that only fulfill their differentiated functions and do not constitute the continuity of the public space with their surroundings.

 

In this sense, rather than keeping the Ancient Greek heritage as a nostalgic tourism element, the project aims to emphasize the importance of the culture of public space, which is the most precious component of the heritage.

Aside from the programs that are needed, the project area includes what is considered as a series of sub-spaces where the users can casually perform their daily cultural, social and resting activities.
