Kadıköy Municipality Idea Competition
Kadikoy Municipality Architecture competition
Kadıköy is a large, populous, and cosmopolitan district of Istanbul, Turkey on the northern shore of the Sea of Marmara.
29 Aug 2013 submission deadline (delivery)
THE SUBJECT AND SCOPE OF THE COMPETITION
The competition is about the construction of urban locations which are used for public services, such as Kuşdili Meadow, Salı Pazarı (Tuesday Bazaar), Söğütlüçeşme Train Station, Metrobus Station, Kadıköy Municipality Service Building and Marriage Office, Şükrü Saraçoğlu Stadium and Fenerbahçe Sport Facilities, Kadıköy Fire Station, Kurbağalıdere and Yoğurtçu Park, which are on the 2.8 km valley, which includes Kurbağalıdere and its surrounding area between D100 and the sea, within a framework of a new vision and strategies.
During the project preparation process, “transparency” and “objectivity” requirements have been determined as the guiding principle. It is contended that, a competition with equal opportunities will create projects of different quality and frame of mind.
Kurbağalıdere Valley in its entirety has been considered with all its existing functions stated above and it is aimed at handling potential focus areas such as Kuşdili Meadow, which is located within the valley and has lost its former value, in a manner that gives priority to Kadıköy’s natural and physical data, social and cultural needs and to be designed within an urban context. The competition aims at transforming the competition area into a center of attraction and allowing the area to gain new functions, which will meet today’s needs as well.
The competition jury will choose (5) five projects as equivalents. For each project 80.000 TL (around 32.000 euros)
