Golden Horn Halic Expo

Video presentation

The project is a proposal for new Expo Hall on one of the most beautiful places in Istanbul - The Golden Horn.

The Expo hall can be divided into small halls and can also serve as a restaurant for the existing Conference Hall next door.

The design of the new building is inspired by the rotating dervishes and Rumi's philosophy. Elements from the mihrab walls of the tombs of the Sultans are also implemented in the design.

The accomplished modern interpretation of rotating dervishes highlights Turkey's desire to subscribe itself on the map of modern architecture while retaining its ties to history.
