Info

THE MUSEUM STRUCTURE, WHICH WOULD CONTAIN DENİZLİ'S RICH ANTIQUE CITY CULTURE AND VALUES, WAS SUPPOSED TO BE DESIGNED METICULOUSLY, BY CREATING A UNIQE ARCHUTECTURAL IDENTITY AT THE SAME TIME. FORM OF THE STRUCTURE WAS SHAPED WITH A THEME, WHICH IS INSPIRED BY PAMUKKALE, ONE OF THE MIST SIGNIFICANT IDENTITY ASPECTS OF DENİZLİ. THIS STRATIFICATION, WHICH PAYS TRUBUTE TO TRAVERTINES, COMPLIES WITH THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LAND, AND ALSO ENSURES THAT REQUIRED IDENTITY IS GIVEN TO THE STRUCTURE. FLUID STRUCTURE ALSO HELPS MUSEUM'S VENUE SET-UP TO ACHIEVE THE REQUIRED DESIGN ELEMENTS. MATERIALS USED AND WATE GAMES REINFORCES THIS PERCEPTION. THIS CONCEPT IS CARRIED TO INDOOR AREA WITH LUMINOUS EFFECTS ON THE ROOF AND RAMPS. THE STRUCTURE INTERACTS WITH LANDED PROPERTY PERFECTLY. AT  THIS PONT, THE MASS DIVIDIES THE STRUCTURAL ISLAND INTO TWO AREAS,  DEFINED AS LOWER AND UPPER SECTION.  THE SQUARE BUILT OPPOSITE TO GRAND MOSQUE, IS SIGNIFICANT FOR BOTH THE MUSEUM AND THE CİTY. INTENSITY OF THE MUSEUEM IS FIRST PERCEIVED IN THIS AREA. WITH ITS MASS EFFECTS WITHIN ITSELF, IT CARRIES THIS SQUARE TO BOTH INSIDE THE MUSEUM, TOP ELEVATIONS OF THE CITY BLOCK AND THE AXIS FROM ÇINAR SQUARE. CAFE, EXHIBITION HALLS AND STORES, WHICH ARE LOCATED ON AN AREA THAT SUPPORT THE TRANSITION POINT, MAKES A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE STRUCTURE AS A WHOLE.
