About Blank, Bits ‘n Bricks

Previously designed by Zaha Hadid Architects in 2006, central Kartal is in the brink of transformation. This urban planning project is a proposal that combines the ZHA’s original conceptual approach, the existing urban dynamics, future projections and applicability.

3D envelopes are created according to existing regulations and established height and massing strategies.

Following the design proposal, the design and implementation approaches are transformed into design codes in order to establish a guideline for architects that will design individual projects.
