BakamHouse P/L designs concept for Istanbul's Olympic bid
The World Olympic Games and FIFA World Football Cup are one two of the greatest events in modern history. There are no other major facilitated monuments as significant as these symbols of those events as legacy of our civilisation.
The image entitled 'Olympic City' in Istanbul could be too premature and expectant- but there is time still for The Olympic Games to be awarded to Turkey in 2020 for the first time, as after initial discussion with Government officials, there are initially design guides and a brief for this spectacle.
a) A design to match Olympic spirit and sport movement. The towers and sculptured players are artistically visually moving to articulate the games.
b)The designing of a new symbol for modern Turkey as a legacy to this generation. The towers in form of sculptured people are revolutionary for the entire world, and Istanbul will receive the legacy with this image.
c) The Heritage Olympic City is located in a new area as the future of Istanbul, with Bosphorus views far away from the famous Old City complex to fully satisfy the heritage issue.
d) The design will generate money for the Olympic Event, as well satisfying businesses in post-Olympic time. The Olympic City Complex will be built and pre-sold, to generate money for the event.
e) Integration with its context and community.
The Olympic City will stand out against other parts of the area by height, volume and uniqueness. It will perform by itself as new symbol of Istanbul. The temperament, culture and spirit of this people are addressed by pattern with forms of sculptured people on the move.
