I saw Frank Gehry’s Istanbul Project

Years ago, when I saw the Guggenheim Museum in the city of Bilbao, Spain, I felt that it took my breath away. That geometrical bright metallic building I stood before had nothing similar to what I had seen until that time. The American architect of the museum, Frank Gehry, had changed the fate of Bilbao. Following the opening of Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao a tiny industrial city in Spain's Basque region, has drawn attention and turned into an important tourist destination.

Do you know that the 76-year-old renowned architect Gehry drew an awesome project for a culture complex in Istanbul?

There! I saw its architectural model in the office of İnan Kıraç, the Vice President of Suna-İnan Kıraç Foundation at Tepebaşı. Planned for a culture complex in replacement of the old Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) building at Tepebaşı this project, which was drawn by Gehry, has unfortunately not been carried into effect until today.





Trouble from the bureaucracy:

As it is possible to explain the reason in a single word, i.e., “bureaucracy.” The building that stands erect as a chunk of iron in the heart of Tepebaşı for years cannot be sold to Suna-İnan Kıraç Foundation, due to some bureaucratic procedures between the TRT and Istanbul Metropolitan Area Municipality.

As a matter of fact, the TRT had put this building on sale for $4 million in 2002. However, no one came forward to buy it on those days. The Foundation is ready to pay $10 million today, but cannot overcome obstacles.

As you know, Istanbul was announced as “Europe's Culture Capital” for 2010. When we are getting prepared to celebrate the year 2010, you think about a culture complex of which its project was drawn by such a prestigious name like Frank Ghery… Remembered for long as a top-level executive at Koç Holding, İnan Kıraç is already having dreams about getting this culture complex ready by 2010.

I would never compare Istanbul with Bilbao; however, I believe that an artwork of Behgry will add tremendously to the Istanbul of the 21st century. An admirer of Istanbul and the Architect Sinan of the Ottomans, Gehry said during a conversation with İnan Kıraç:

“I guarantee additional 500,000 tourists after the completion of the culture complex…”

Given the Bilbao example, this famous architect is right. Suna-İnan Kıraç Foundation doesn't stay put while it expects the obstacles before this culture complex by Gehry are being cleared away.

To talk about the “Istanbul Researches Institute,” which has just opened by the Foundation at Tepebaşı, I came together with İnan Kıraç who tells that he has morphed into a man of culture and art from an industrialist thanks to Suna Kıraç.

Situated a couple bloc away from the Pera Museum, which is another property of the Foundation, Istanbul Researches Institute's objective is to prepare an inventory of Istanbul and offer researchers more than 50,000 books and documents it has in the body.

With İnan Kıraç, we walked through in three sections of the institute the other day. The Institute puts its mark again with the sections on “Atatürk and Republic Researches,” “Ottoman Researches” and “Byzantium Researches.” For the first time in Istanbul, documents belonging to the Byzantine, Ottoman and Republican periods are put together under a single roof.

Istanbul's language, folklore, human character, all produced during those periods, will be found at the institute. Its vital function will be to convey this information to next generations.

If we think that the real Istanbulites are reducing in number due to migration, such a “storage” is extremely important for generations to come.





Remembering the Byzantium period:

I would like to dwell on the Byzantium period. I think, a section on Byzantine related researches in Turkey, except the Byzantium Dept. at Istanbul University, is first ever. As İnan Kıraç puts, “People spend fortunes to see the Byzantium artworks. We on the other hand do not even recognize cultural heritage that we have inherited.”

Leading Byzantine specialists sent some books in their libraries when they heard a Byzantine Research section will be established in Istanbul. “Istanbul Research Institute” has intentions to open departments in universities and to provide scholarships in the future.

Filling a quite important gap, the institute undoubtedly wouldn't be implemented if it were not backed by private sector. İnan Kıraç on the subject says, “Everything shouldn't be expected from the state, the private sector should also share the hardship in the matter of culture and art issues.”

Suna-İnan Kıraç Foundation amply shares the burden. It has spent $460 million both for Pera Museum and Istanbul Researches Institute; and ready to spend $160 million for the culture complex drawn by Frank Gehry.

Two years to come, the foundation's value will amount to $500 million.

I really, really hope that Gehry's proposal goes under way. It'd be a great landmark addition to an already amazing city!

Zorlu now owns the most precious property in Istanbul

Zorlu Real Estate Development Co. has given the highest bid in the tender and acquired a 96,000 meter square land in Levent, previously owned by the Highway Administration.


After a long open bidding process, Zorlu Holding offered $ 800 million and seized the precious property from the hands of its rivals.

Nazif Zorlu said they are planning to pay the amount in 'cash.'

Sama-Dubai Istanbul Real Estate Co. which had come up with Dubai Towers Project, has withdrawn from the tender as the bid reached $ 728 million.


Emaar and Sama Dubai also take aprt at the bid

Woah, so the Dubaians lost the bid?! Does this mean Zorlu will build upon DTI's plot..?

And do we know anything about Zorlu's ideas for the plot?

no
its another plot
the IETT/DTI plot bid will be end of the months

Emaar wanted to make it clear by overbid it with 15-25 mil steps
but at 799 mil dolar they stopped and congratulated Mr. Zorlu, who came later

IMO the IETT will be sold for around 250 mil dolar

Sweet, thanks for clearing that up Sercan.

But wow, $800Million for a plot really is quite something.
