ISTANBUL Community Market COMPETITION winners

ISTANBUL COMMUNITY MARKET IDEAS COMPETITION had as a starting point to bring to discussion the Marketplace typology: its present challenges and future opportunities. The competition called for proposals that brought to light the positive qualities of markets and test them in the specific context of Istanbul, where the urban commercial activity is still of great presence and importance.

The selected projects have managed to bring to light issues of conceptual relevance to the discussion of the typology as well as the Intervention Site. Themes discussed revolved around the needs of the community, the strong historical context, the relevance and usefulness of the existing buildings, the formal evolution of the typology, the changing needs of a public space, permanent vs. ephemeral strategies, the commercial activity as an urban activator. Privileged were the solutions that presented innovative qualities to the conceptualization and formalization of the Marketplace.
