TSHF 90th ANNIVERSARY
The proposal for Turkish Hunting and Shooting Federation (THSF) 90th Anniversary Capital Complex combines sports’ functions with social, cultural and commercial activities that ensure the liveliness of the zone during both high and low seasons. In that sense, the main challenge of the project lies in understanding and implementing a range of “scale”s that are consistent both during olympic events (highdensity) and regular weekend trips (low density).
The project utilizes a spiral promenade that wraps the shooting polygons around a central focus: the final polygon. The spiral organization encourages interaction between various sports and social functions around a central “garden”. The promenade thus turns the travel between two polygons into a weekend trip activity, providing views of the central garden and social activities in the zone.
The project is developed through a meditation on the problem of keeping olympic complexes alive after major events are completed. In that sense, the 90th Anniversary Capital Polygon Complex offers an alternative approach to the changing densities in the lifetime of olympic complexes.
