The rampart urban growth devouring Istanbul has overwhelmed the parks that used to extend down the slopes from the city above and along the bank of the Bosphorus, there where the agency’s project is located. The aim is to re-green
this district and recreate the landscape of the river banks. Three heavily planted tower blocks positioned down the slope
of the site and resting on a base containing a shopping centre with terraces and hanging gardens, free the ground level
and allow trees and parks to be planted. These avant-garde buildings are designed to be energy-positive.
