Bandırma Park Competition Entry

Primary objective is to create a new genre of park where production is the key‐act to create a generator for local, urban and regional scale transformation. After years of military use (particularly

for storage) with limited access, the new Bandırma Park will be a ground where different modes of production are in an incorporated and cooperative relationship; production in/with design, production with landscape, production with community, production of knowledge, production of energy.

The production‐based program of the park will create a milieu not only for passive recreation, but also for design, education, interaction and exchange. Such multidimensional program will generate a publically accessible and inclusive park for the whole year. With the proposed program, the park can act as an economic, physical and social generator both for Bandırma and the greater region. Thus, existing heavy industry will have the opportunity to shift to a design, research and development based production.
