LEVENT SHOPPING MALL
Levent is the commercial center of Istanbul. The district is getting more and more dense every passing day and there is barely any open public space left in the district today. The design aims to give people as much public space as possible, without loosing awareness of the economic rent in the region.
Shopping malls and office buildings (which are the most basic part of the economical system), are combined with a huge public space. This public space aims to bring people together from every class of the society. Shopping malls don't usually need to receive light from facades, so the public space was created just by moving the shopping mall below the ground level, so the roof can be used as a public space.
