Rhythms and routines as theater of daily life. A venue for markets, activities, events, celebration, and civic life to unfold.
Under Construction in 2022
For centuries weekly life of Kütahya's residents includes the weekly one-day markets. In the historic civic center. This timeless function of a civic marketplace is integral to daily life, is part of the civic identity, and is to be realized in the civic landmark for 21st century urban culture. With a sloping terrain the permenant marketplace's stone base is nestled into the earth with multiple entry points to the flows of pedestrians. The upper level creates a continues public space with the block's streets and is protected from wind, rain, snow and noise with a canopy which enables the sunlight to come through as well as be harvested for energy. The underground levels will offer parking within the historic core.
