Hello Gamze Nur Karakoca,
I liked the project and it would be nice to have more bright colors and 3D illustrations to show the whole view and the inner sections
Wish you all the best
War brings chaos, confusion and disappearance, and in this design, the metaphor of GETTING LOST has been tried to be obtained by interpreting the LABYRINTH analogy together. This design is a continuation of Çimenlik Castle (1460s), which is the oldest building in the historical texture of the city in the north, and the starting point of the labyrinth is provided by a steel bridge from this direction.
First of all, while approaching the design from the upper level, the traces left by the LABYRINTH on the upper floor are tried to make the visitors feel the anxiety of GETTING LOST. There are different semantic spaces /courtyards on the starting and ending route of the spatial setup. These are in order; BEGINNING (with reference to Namazgah Bastion), DEFENSE (with reference to Çimenlik Castle) ATTACK (with reference to Hamidiye Bastion), LIBERATION (with reference to Martyrs' Monument).
The construction of the outer walls is made with mesh.The construction of the inner walls is made of reinforced concrete. The part where the hope light is made of glass
