iki, a practice based in Ankara, Turkey, have shared with us their competition proposal for a Concert Hall and Art Center for Ankara, capital city of Turkey. Additional renders, plans, sections and a brief architects description after the break.

The competition challenged participants to see architecture regarding a complex which consists a Local Municipality Building, Art Center, theatre hall and a big concert hall which will be made by remembrance of the famous Turkish classical musician “Ulvi Cemal Erkin”. The collaborative effort within the office, led by Hakan evkaya and Kutlu Bal, produced a proposal which has been combined all these functions in a one big box. Thus the outer space for city could be maximized.
