This project was initially brought from International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam 2010. The main subject is to analyze the urban growth around the world. It is highly focused on the developing countries’ urban planning issues during economic growth. Very interesting communities and cities have been mentioned and studied in different forms. However the most striking part of the exhibition is Istanbul. Several videos and graphical works focuses on such urban issues of Istanbul that we realize how the real problem of our city lies very very deep. Not giving out detailed information, I am pretty sure my word will be more clear once you see the project.
The exhibition is located in Tutun Deposu (Depo Istanbul) between the dates of 12 March 2010-9 May 2010.
I recommend Open City Istanbul to everyone and anyone who resides in Istanbul. It truly is an enlightenment.
