Making City Istanbul

10.10.12 - 13.12.12

Location: Istanbul Modern

The results of the IABR Atelier Istanbul, set up by the IABR and the Municipality of Arnavutköy (Istanbul), were first displayed in the main exhibition of the 5th IABR: Making City. The design research conducted by the offices H+N+S Landscape Architects and 51N4E did not end with this presentation, however. A more elaborate version of the plans and new specific design proposals for pilot projects to be implemented by 2014 will form the core of the exhibition Making City Istanbul. This exhibition also features a selection of international ‘best practices’, which propose innovative answers to similar urban questions.
