PARKOPERA, a cultural facility designed by Alper Derinboğaz, Salon, is a center of attraction that will be situated between apartment buildings and within a neighborhood park in Antalya, Turkey. Through the development of both the building and the outdoor space around it, the center creates multiple opportunities for the community to come together and enjoy various cultural events.
