URBAN DESIGN

How might we define an integration hub through urban flows?

Izmir Transport Integration Hub
Izmir, Turkiye

Honorable Mention, National Competition for Izmir Transportation and Integration Hub, 2017

As a major port city on the Aegean Sea, Izmir has been transforming with a constant kinesis. While the transportation network always had major importance, the boundaries defined by these roads, bridges, and railroads, create urban gaps - brownfields that disrupt the urban flow and disintegrate the neighborhoods.

Within this context, the “Landscraper” transportation hub aims to transform a brownfield site into a sustainable, multi leveled public park that becomes a connecting tissue for the neighorboods. The proposal integrates not only the transportation means, and also the urban fabric through indoor/outdoor spaces. The Park is designed to be a lively structure with over and underpasses that allow effortless flow.
