Kengo Kuma architect presented plans for the future Odunpazari Museum in Turkey. The promising complex will be built of separately designed cubic structures resembling wooden boxes for products (see. a photo). The gaps between horizontal wooden strips in the walls will give the interior a significant volume of natural light.
The building will be erected in an excessor, a university city located three hours from Istanbul. According to Kengo Kum, the museum was designed in such a way that the building was mixed with the urban landscape of the town and become a new cultural attraction.
Wooden boxes installed at different angles will create the effect of a gradual exaltation of the structure from edges to the center. As a result, you get a large building, not distinguished, but also depending on traditional low -level buildings in the immediate vicinity of it.
Entering the museum, the guests will be in the central atrium, created from four wooden boxes and trusted ceiling lamps. Large exhibitions will need to be sought at the lower level, and private collections – in small boxes in the hands of the building.
The choice of wood as the main material for the construction of the museum is a tribute to the traditional wooden house building of the Ottoman Empire.
