News Center -TDO- Hosted by Hungary’s Ambassador to Turkey Viktor, from the last period of the Ottoman Empire to the first period of the Republic, an exhibition of unrealized projects by Hungarian architects in Turkey was opened to visitors at the Contemporary Arts Center of Çankaya Municipality prepared by the collaboration of Istanbul Hungarian Cultural Center, Gulbaba Mausoleum Preservation Foundation, Budapest Technical and Economic University Department of Architectural History and Preservation of Historical Monuments, Yıldız Technical University and Turkish architecture Research Center.
The exhibition somehow brings together the unrealized building plans and projects made by famous Hungarian architects during the last period of the Ottoman Empire and the first period of the Turkish Republic. In addition, it is aimed to compare the projects presented in this exhibition with the German-Turkish architectural relations of the period within a historical framework. The exhibition also allows visitors to look at drawings of buildings designed for important landmarks in Istanbul and Ankara, and imagine how these projects would have stood if they had been realized. At the exhibition, visitors will be able to vote on the structure they want to come to life as if they were on an architectural jury thanks to a poll.
