Baş başa

Installation

YEAR: 2016
LOCATION: ISTANBUL, TR
SIZE: 4 M2
CLIENT: TURKUAZ TANITIM VE ILETISIM

This installation is designed for Beşiktaş Garden & Flower Festival, 2016.
The assigned spot is the entrance of one of the most well known shopping malls of Istanbul, Akmerkez. Since the spot is on the main artery of city’s traffic and there was no green area that could be seen, the aim was to design an experience for being alone with a tree and remembering nature’s healing powers before or after going shopping. It’s an area made with rammed-earth walls, an open ceiling to see the sky, a seating area for standing still and an acacia tree to be near.
The given name “Başbaşa” means “tete a tete”.
