The (Un)fragementing wall

More Info


This project addresses the issue of the wall used as a boundary between people and regions. By looking back at the historical use of the wall in Islamic architecture a different meaning can be retrieved that focusses on integrating different worlds, and merging many different functions side by side using the wall. The objective of this design research was therefor finding a suitable place in Istanbul and injecting those old principles to achieve integration between two different worlds using the wall as a leading element.
