Islamic Cultural Center ​

Status: Schematic Design Program: Cultural Center Square Feet: 100,000 sf Location: United States

Buro Koray Duman designed a new 100,000 sq ft. cultural center prototype. The institution will provide recreation, culinary, art, education, retail and office spaces. A research on historical cultural centers, as well as contemporary ones, provided us with the idea of a vertical public landscape to create an open, transparent and welcoming space. The public landscape wraps around the solid volume inside, carving out necessary public volumes; auditorium, library, galleries and etc, thus creating a new kind of Cultural Center.
