Havvada: New Urban Model by Dror

From the architects: A century after the Republic of Turkey was proclaimed, the Canal Istanbul project offers to re-visit the map of the city. One billion cubic meter of soil will be carved out in order to create the canal. iNANLAR proposes to utilize the soil and use this opportunity to build a new land and a new model for a forward-thinking living environment.

A green island made of 6 hills of different sizes circling the downtown center of the land. Each hill up rises on top of a mega structural sphere that supports the residences on the hillsides and a community life at the center.

Each hill is designed as a mega-dome structure based on engineering and structural principals studied and implemented in architecture since ancient times and further developed as a geodesic dome in the last century by Buckminster Fuller. The design proposed for most of the island relies on compression and tensional integrity; it maximizes the material utilized to build the structure and infra-structure of the Island. The urban planning optimizes the slopes of the hills and their panoramic view on each side for greater residential areas.
