BEYLİKDÜZÜ VALLEY OF LIFE

The idea unfolds itself on a multi-layer system of design elements where urban and natural identities of the district are reflected on the valley. The four elements of "urban interface", "connectors", "rooms" and "patches" are considered within a figure-ground system in which the "urban interface" and "connectors" constitute the figure, reflecting urban identity; and "rooms" and "patches" constitute the ground, referring natural identity. This separation of design elements provides the means to relate the valley with the surrounding urban fabric on one hand, and at the same time, keeping the low levels highly natural on the other.
