EVKA CULTURE CENTER AND TRANSFER
Culture center and Transfer station programs appear as programs with different characteristics. Combining these two programs of different nature was handled in a binding approach, not a divisive one. An architectural concept has been built on the natural dynamic created by the coexistence of these programs. The idea is to build a unifying, binding network.
Platform lines have been resolved to the north of the plot. The area between the metro station in the south and the bus platforms in the north has been determined as a built-up area.
The structure is an interface between the metro station plaza and platform axes. The urban and spatial equivalent of the natural energy in this transition line has been sought. There are interspersed programs that interact and guide pedestrian routes. Pedestrians interact with these programs when changing routes and/or vehicles.
Public transport evokes the concepts of the importance of pedestrian/human and civilization. The overlapping of public transportation network and socio-cultural programs creates the concept of cultural accessibility. The social network established on an architectural scale for this purpose is continuous, frequented and accessible at the urban scale.
Pedestrians meet with corner-less spaces. Corner-less spaces respond to the movements on the proposed network texture as a formula for natural interaction without hindering them. It is aimed to capture the spirit of organic pedestrian movements.
An upper eave suitable for the climate characteristics of İzmir has been proposed. The spaces under the eaves are permeable and the building is not divided by an outer wall, the sub-programs form their interior spaces under the eaves.
