Though temporarily postponed due to the Gezi Park protests, Architecture and Ideas has celebrated the opening of their winning entry – Sky Spotting Stop - for the 2013 Young Architects Program (YAP) at Istanbul Modern in Turkey. Offering refuge from the historic city’s busy streets, the fragmented canopy of reflective circular discs invites visitors to “sit, rest, gather, play, or skyspot” while overlooking the mouth of the Bosphorus.
