Diyarbakir Public and Children’s Library, which aims to bring a new life into Diyarbakir architecture manages to carry traditional references along with its innovative design. Inspired by the street-court structure of Diyarbakir Suriçi region and the use of stepped housetops, the project consists of two main building programs, the public library and the children’s library, located around the atrium. This court, designed as a fountain and a tree themed middle garden by based on the traditional references of the city, doubles as a center line that connects the main entrances of the two buildings.

Two main materials were used on the building envelope that emphasize the mass effect: The corten steel material, which refers to Suriçi region and is preferred on the outer wall, is also designed as an intelligent membrane that surrounds the structure and is transparent in some places not to disrupt the visual relationship. Natural stone, which is considered as one of the main materials of design, is frequently used in traditional architecture of Diyarbakir. While natural stone is preferred in the main masses, corten material is used in the surrounding shell.
