Hope on Water


Post Emergency Floating Units for Anticipated Istanbul Earthquake
Istanbul has privatized its public spaces which were supposed to be used after earthquake, can water be the solution?

Type of project
  • Practical problems

Hope on Water is an interdisciplinary research project (architecture, sociology and civil engineering), for the anticipated Istanbul Earthquake.
Designated emergency assembly points in the case of an earthquake in Istanbul were announced in 2001. Since then, most of these public spaces have been built up, which raises the question of where everyone will be housed in the case of emergency. The idea of designing a speculative prototype of a floating emergency house came out of this fact: what if the response is not about stable land, but manageable water?
