Besiktas Fish Market: Gokhan Avcioglu and GAD Architecture
Besiktas Fish market Project is a notable effort by the community of Besiktas to revitalize their neighborhood. Besiktas located in one of Istanbul’s populated and diverse neighborhoods. It is an eclectic area with a hectic yet village like atmosphere that is in the process of urban preservation and renewal.
GAD and Gokhan Avcioglu started the design process with a series of manipulations of the triangular site and its ground surface.The inflating the surface was a quick indicator of the possible symbolic nature of the site and project
The design solution was to maintain its iconic neighborhood presence, while also reaffirming its welcoming feeling. GAD designed a triangular shaped concrete shell covering the entire site with large openings at street level.
