OODA: istanbul disaster prevention + education centre

portuguese practice OODA created ‘istanbul disaster prevention + education centre’, a proposal for an international design

competition to propose a facility to protect against and inform of the implications of natural disasters to be located

within istanbul, turkey. the tilted axis of the geometrical structure is set within a landscape featuring a cultural turkish pattern

generating a network of connections to the surrounding context. leading towards the iconic building, a series of walled pathways

are carved into the constructed site and a park is placed upon the generated roof. programmatic spaces within the multiple

and irregular levels intend to host courses, seminars and venues to develop public awareness about earthquakes and floods.
