MVRDV - Yenikapi Archaeo Park

Yenikapi Archaeo Park

If a cosmopolitan city is to be defined as a place where circulation of different people, knowledge, technology, cultures, ideologies, capital and goods throughout history intersects and transposes, then Istanbul has performed this function for several thousand years: Istanbul is a 'global junction point' that not only connects continents, but also civilizations and lately, new forms of modernities. The Yenikapi Archaeo Park is MVRDV's solution to the clash of modernity, a metro station, and history, ancient ruins.
