Architecture new design idea

A10: Radical antenna and other architecture

Image A10: design for broadcasting tower in the city of Çanakkale, Turkey

The assignment was clear: consider the technological requirements of the broadcasting tower and recreational potentials of a public entity with equal emphasis. The site is located on the top of a forested hill overlooking the city of Çanakkale, on the northern part of Aegean coast of Turkey.

This past February, eight international teams where shortlisted to design this 100-metre-tall observation and broadcast tower for the city

The winning team, which is formed by IND and Powerhouse Company, two Rotterdam-based offices who work together with consulting firm ABT, resolved these paradoxes by uniting all the different functions and spatial requirements into a single, strong gesture.

A path made of Cor-Ten steel that loops around the site creates a stunning close-up experience of the forest and offers panoramic views in all directions. It merges into the visitor centre that soars over the trees, offering views over the city and forest, before returning to the top of the hill, where it shoots off into the sky…

Further in the new A10: Finland, learning by doing; Stockholm’s best – and strangest; Fresh charisma in Zaragoza; Adrés Jacques, the odd salesman; Tangents at the Venice Biennale.
