Antalya has a Mediterranean climate, and this climate affects people’s daily routine and human ergonomics. Because of the climate, socialization is happening after the sunset.
So, it is indispensable to preserve the trees in the area and design the building as a sunshade. Therefore, the purpose of the design is to attract the users to the area, not only for the main course of the building but also for socializing.
Multi-purpose Performing Arts Hall became the dominant unit in the building. The foyer, workshops, and rehearsal rooms are opened to the “Art Street” which connects the users in the park and all functions in the building.
A restaurant, an observation platform, public areas, and courtyards are designed in order to use the building day and night, summer through winter. By courtesy of the terrace and walking platforms, the building can be used not only on the ground also on different levels.
