MAXXI and Insula architettura e ingegneria with Based Architecture present “Cose Turche”, a conversation of six voices about Istanbul, aimed to recognize and trace the pulsating identity of a metropolis, which in its present metamorphosis is able to tell us about significant pieces of third millenium urban culture.
Recently some of Istanbul public spaces as Gezi Park, Taksim square with Ataturk Cultural Center by Hayati Tabanlioglu and Third Bosphorus Bridge became symbol and central places of an intense debate still open, which assumed a global broader connotation.
Now more than ever Turkey in general and particularly Istanbul are undergoing a major cultural and economic change, that no doubt is closely implied with urban development and territorial morphological change, in a tight twine between urban politics, history rewriting, economic expansion and collective partecipation-paradigmatic of contemporary metropolis.
The conference is held by representative personalities of Istanbul architectural and urban culture, and it is intended to be the occasion for a diffuse reflection about Istanbul urban development and the impressive transformation the city has deeply involving in.
