Sinan The Architect Research Center and Museum
Installation – program – the construction of identity.
Being among the listed buildings, the project area contains the all urban block including the tomb of Sinan the Architect. Instead of being placed in single empty area, given program is spreaded to all empty areas among the listed buildings. Functions given in the program are classified as private, public and semi-public. These parts are interconnected through the courtyards. These additions to the historic fabric is covered by a shell which forms identity for additional buildings. Furthermore the shell provokes curiosity for buildings and courtyards inside, hiding behind the shell.
