Istanbul Disaster Prevention and Education Center | OODA

Istanbul Disaster 01 580x351
Portuguese firm OODA desiged a proposal for the 'Istanbul Disaster prevention andEducation Center' international design competition. The aim of this competition was to establish a proposal for a centre fully equipped with adequate technology and facilities in order to be prepared against a disaster that may affect Istanbul and to develop public consciousness about the disasters in general and specifically about earthquakes. "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 geometrical driven development- to the local environment. check out these renders:
