Consept Landscape Project for Çağlayan Square

The departure point of the concept landscape project for Çağlayan square is based on freedom and captivity inspired by the dominant position of the courthouse. The common metaphor of the freedom, the gull, is integrated to the whole design details. The general aim of the design is focused on firstly the transformation of irregular and chaotic settlement through the people based approach and secondly the configuration of infrastructure and related guidelines along with the context of gull. Multifunctional design criterias had been used while forming the new square concept. Various function senerios had been stated for large groups and individual users. As the land structure allows, platforms with different elevations had been designed. On these platforms, water surfaces, hard landscapes and green textures are used. These platforms can be used as ice skating track, seating areas or a show stage.
