CESME WATERFRONT URBAN DESIGN COMPETITION


Cesme is located on the west coast of Turkey, and is one of the primary locations to experience Mediterranean and Aegean culture. The project is a proposal for the competition hosted by Izmir Chamber of Commerce to build a better water front for Cesme to enhance these iconic experiences.

The design aims to make a center where the tourists and local people can gather and work without interrupting one another. The area is designed to have a center of health, culture, nature, sport, shopping and mediterranean cuisine. For this purpose, the area is designed according to a slow city movement (citta-slow) that is more pedestrian friendly, with less traffic and vehicles.
