Actually it "was" u/c and they decided to built those temporary stands for the Basketball WC.
THis one is more a "copy" of the big one in barcelona
Yes, the venue is very close to airport and near metro station (line 1) of Atakoy-Sirinevler. Keeping M1 you can go to Aksaray, where you can get tramwayds to city centrum or getting of in Zeytinburnu, where you get the tramways to downtown (Bazar, Cemberlitas, Sultanhamet, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, and hotel distict,...).
I advice you to bok an hotel near Sultanhamet then you go to Olympic dome, keeping tramways until to Aksaray and then M1 getting off in Atakoy.
No book an otel in that zone, it is very ugly.
