This blog posts for a collective project in the fine art practice class (which debates on public art) in sabanci university. The posts so far are about the survey of the park in nisantasi. The park is considered as public and the aim is to think about it in the context of public art and to make interventions.

Pedestrian Bridge Competition by IBB (06.09.2009)

Posted in Architecture by baskonusbirakdinle on November 10, 2009

The competition proposal consists of 3 individual design approaches for 3 individual locations.

Design Team:

Onur Kemal Kosedag, Architect-Istanbul Technical University

E.Onur Ceritoglu, Architect-Interior Designer-Istanbul Technical University

Ozgur Ilter, Architect-University of Applied Science Frankfurt

Jurgen S.Wassink, Architect-Städelschule Frankfurt

The results are here.

1_Istanbul Findikzade

The location is more public rather than the other locations. The idea is to have a sense of park-street atmosphere on the bridge. It is connected to the tam line in the middle.


2_Istanbul Goztepe

The high-way has busy with 3 lanes in each direction. Concept is having a steel frame that can stands with only with 2 concrete columns. It is modular and iconic.


3_Istanbul Topkapi

It is a landmark. It connects the metro-bus to the culture park. It is the most iconic one that encourages the development of the park.

The public installation by Guillaume Segur inspired by Möbius strip, a mathematical diagram. Ian Borden who is a skater-architecture professor in the Bartlett stated that skaters consider built environment as surfaces (actually they develop a way of observing such that they analyze the shape of urban elements quickly) that can be skate-able. The skaters who uses this sculpture-city intervention is against the conventional rules of the gravity. The human with its limited abilities can not experience the geometry without a skateboard. Such complexity in the morph geometry can be related with reflexive environments. Is skateboarding in realty projection of flying in 2nd life?
