New cultural icon for Istanbul

New cultural icon for Istanbul

Plans have been unveiled for a new cultural centre that will overlook Istanbul’s Taksim Square. The new development is a modern interpretation of the Atatürk Culture Center that was built in the 1960s.

Designed by Tabanlioglu Architects, the venue will built using locally sourced natural materials. It will mainly serve as an opera house and will feature a 2,500 seat opera hall with natural acoustics. In addition it will offer smaller concert halls, theatre halls, cinemas, libraries, design shops as well as cafes and restaurants.

The facade will be reconstructed to be more transparent than the former venue giving views to the red outer shell of the opera hall inside the building. A huge outdoor screen will allow stage performances to be broadcast simultaneously for the public

“It is very gratifying to have taken over such a heritage, beyond that, of course, we see this building to be a permanent cultural symbol for Turkey and the world,” says Murat Tabanlıoğlu, founder of Tabanlioglu Architects.

The centre, which is due to complete in 2019, is expected to be a major attraction for the city’s residents as well as international tourists.
