Before 1894 -

After1894 - 2014

Until the restoration following the earthquake of 1894, the Grand Bazaar had no shops as we know them in the western world: along both sides of the roards merchants (who usually was the producers of the products they were selling) sat on wooden divans in front of their shelves.

After the restoration of the earthquake in 1894, shops were created alond the streets.

Each of them got a space of about 180cm-240cm in length, and 90cm-120cm in depth. The name of this space was in Turkish Dolap, meaning stall. The most precious merchandise was not on display, but kept in cabinets.


Shopping Mall

After 2014 - 2222 After the restoration oin 2014, the grand bazaar became a shopping mall. In the beginning it was quite a success attracting locals for the shopping because it was easily accessible in city centre, providing a wide range of shops and services. But that was soon about to change, not unlikely every shopping mall. In the beginning attracts people, but after a few decades it becomes old fashioned and people lose interest in it.

Experimentation with mazes


Visual analysis of Relativity (M. C. Escher, 1953) Lighting

For his work named Relativity, Escher uses three perspective points, creating an imaginary world where the laws of gravity are obsolete. When you’ve got three vanishing points they form a triangle. Usually when we use three point perspective two of the vanishing points are on the horizon and the third is either above (the zenith) or below (the nadir).

Focus

if you changed the horizon from one side of the triangle to the other didn’t look distorted.

Urban areas

Focus: The initial focus is just about in the center – it’s the guy walking vertically up the wall carrying the sack. After that, the strong contrast curve above him begins to move our eye around the picture where it is supposed to wander and take in the contradictory details. Composition and Design: Like most of Escher’s work, it’s got a strong theoretical and geometric design. The core pattern is a triangle of stairs that’s a flipped version of the unseen triangle of vanishing points. (Unseen because they are beyond the border of the drawing.)

Materiality

My aim is to use lightweight materials to minimize the impact on the structural loads of the existing building, which is over 500 years old. Therefore, the use of timber, carbon and lightweight panels seemed appropriate.

Carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer or carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP or CRP or often simply carbon fiber), is an extremely strong and light fiberreinforced polymer which contains carbon fibers.


Timber has been used for a lot of centuries in Turkish constructions. From residential to commercial buildings, there is a wide array of examples of timber strucure buildings. Therefore, there is well established industry in regards of the craftsmanship of this material. Also it is sustainable, local, lighweight and durable
