LOW-TECH DESIGN! Istanbul tourist information by So? Architects, Rotterdam

November 13th, 2012 by retail design blog

Istanbul-based So? Architects have developed an informal tourist information exhibit about Istanbul, where unlike other centers, the installation is shown in Rotterdam. The conception consists of the perplexity of 400 years in diplomatic relationships between Holland and Turkey. The atmospheric space allows the visitor to have a dynamic interpretation of the surrounding setup.

By obtaining various amounts of layered material, the interior environment is formed with irrelevant yet connected elements; the existing building, with complementary topography made from used wooden pallets and yellow plastic tubes.

On the ground and upper level, large prints of Hans Wilschut and Kim Bouvy’s photographs are hosted within the pallet structures to create viewing points for the photos. Ultimately, the project directly serves users with informative images of the city of Istanbul, where they instead discover a deeper, alternative yet touristic expressions.

Project team: Sevince Bayrak, Oral Göktaş, Hüseyin Özgür, Tuğçe Alkaya, Elif Karaköse
