DAYLIGHT - DARKNESS
Daylight in buildings - Region 2: Central and Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
Muhammed Ömer Keşkek
The designed victory axis and the metaphor of destruction-resistance-rising to victory have been tried to be represented by using daylight and darkness. In the process of telling the destructive effect of the war, the resistance of the city during the war and the victory won, this effect was tried to be given to people with “daylight”. The shadow effect formed as a result of the fragmentation of the profiles used on the bridge is the representation of the beginning of the war. The dark places that give the devastating effect of the war to the people taken to the war museum (to obscurity) by the bridge are hidden from the daylight. The fractures created by the layer movements, designed as an interpretation of the struggle in the war, and the mesh surface of the viewing terrace provide controlled “daylight” to the necessary spaces in the war museum. After experiencing the destructive and unknown aspects of war with both darkness and controlled “daylight”, the light is reached with rising profiles. The exit, which is the interpretation of victory, ends the museum with a look at the monument, which is the representation of victory.
