COSE TURCHE.Architecture in Istanbul

In which direction is development in Istanbul heading?
What are the mechanisms underlying the urban transformations of the metropolises of our century?
A six-way conversation about the Turkish city allowing us to recognise and trace the pulsating identity of the metropolis that, in its current metamorphosis, succeeds in recounting significant aspects of urban culture in the third millennium.

COSE TURCHE.Architecture in Istanbul
Implications and significance of a changing metropolis
Thursday 3 July, 20.00
MAXXI Piazza, YAP Space – admittance free
curated by Insula Architettura Ingegneria with Based Architecture

Recently, a number of public spaces in Istanbul have become a symbol and central location of an on-going debate that starts out with the Turkish city and opens to include the entire world. Now more than ever, Turkey in general and Istanbul in particular are experiencing intense economic and cultural change that without doubt implies close links with urban development and the morphological mutation of the territory, in a dense weave of urban politics, the rewriting of history, economic expansion and collective-paradigmatic participation of contemporary metropolises.
