1. Litterfall is a competition entry for conceptual social and cultural center located in Istanbul/TURKEY
2. Litterfall: social and cultural center, in a neighborhood in stanbul at the coast side between Caddebostan and Pendik, is to create a space and atmosphere where people come together to share their ideas, talk, sing, paint, dance and create a social and cultural life to illuminate their own daily life.
3. The idea of sustainable construction and recycled material, a unit, re-used wooden pallet, is the core of the design, which fulfills all the aspects of space as a whole. Since architecture is also a culture, which should be transferred or should be an area for transformation, recycled material as a wooden pallet, a module with a specific dimension and try to juxtapose with the whole idea. The wooden pallet is also accumulated on top of each other to create the space, the mass, the shelter, the amphitheatre and also its own context at the coast side of stanbul.
The tectonic language is also created through this idea of accumulation; the light is invited from the wooden recycled material inside the building, which creates a demand to touch the surfaces, or a demand to follow the diffused light. The dynamic movement of upper shelter is also reflected to inner space. The recycled material creates an effect of experience through its worn effect, instead of shinny-packed, clear- cut inner and outer spaces.
To summarize; the main idea of Litterfall is to transfer the idea of the cultural accumulation, to architectural accumulation through one single modest recycled material and method of construction and create an atmosphere and spatial language with the tectonic meaning of recycling.
