MERSIN | Projects & Construction

Mersin
Southern Turkey



Mersin is a large city and a port on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey. Mersin is important for Turkey's economy, and Turkey's largest seaport is located there. Mersin's nickname within Turkey is "Pearl of the Mediterranean" and the city will host the 2013 Mediterranean Games. According to the Turkish Statistical Institute, as of 2011 the Mersin Metropolitan Municipality had a population of 876,958.

Today, Mersin is a large city spreading out along the coast, with Turkey's second tallest skyscraper (the 52-floor Mertim Tower, which was the tallest skyscraper in Turkey for 13 years between 1987 and 2000), huge hotels, an opera house, expensive real estate near the sea or up in the hills, and many other modern urban amenities. The seaside of Mersin is the longest seaside in Turkey as well as in Eastern Mediterranean. The population of the city is 876,958 (Mersin Provinces 1,682,848) according to 2012 estimates.

The port is the mainstay of Mersin's economy. There are 45 piers, a total port area of 785,000 square metres (194 acres), with a capacity of 6,000 ships per year.

Adjacent to the port is Mersin Free Zone established in 1986, the first free zone in Turkey, with warehouses, shops, assembly-disassembly, maintenance and engineering workshops, banking and insurance, packing-repacking, labelling and exhibition facilities. The zone is a publicly owned center for foreign investors, close to major markets in the (Middle East, North Africa, East and West Europe, Russian Federation and Central Asia. The trading volume of the free zone was USD 51,8 billion in 2002.

Mersin has highway connections to the north, east and west. Mersin is also connected to the southern railroad. Adana airport is 69 kilometres (43 mi).

Çukurova Regional Airport

Çukurova Regional Airport

http://www.emrearolat.com/2011/01/07...ional-airport/

The design process of Çukurova Regional Airport Complex is conditioned by a number of contextual parameters. The notion of ‘place’ can easily be described as the main driver. The existing natural texture and the dominant agricultural character of the region were prioritized as crucial criterias. Spatial impact of the terminal to its users, the first impression of the city carried by the building or the lasting residue of this place in the imagery of the passenger heading his destination were also important sensual facts in design agenda. Another specific intention of the building was challenging the environmental difficulties and minimizing energy usage that a building of this scale can produce. In this manner, creating a sustainable airport that has ecological concerns and inclinations was kept as a sub-context in the design.


In design process of the terminal structure and the supplementary structures were proposed to service 10 million passengers in the first ten year phase. The environmental damage caused by recent large scale projects, especially heat island problem created by large surfaced roofs and open air parking areas, is detected as important reasons for global warming.


Formation of a“topography-building” is proposed as the most suitable approach to meet the facts of the context and place. The main green shell acts as a second roof that fade away and become permeable at some places and allow sunlight and natural air ventilation in space. This large “covering”, slightly shaped by the programmatic needs and masses of the buildings below makes the building invisible as it collides the surrounding natural texture with the building. Produced with ecological intentions, large inner gardens form attractive perspectives inside the main space, carry the sunlight to the furthest corners and also allow the air to freely circulate in the building by cross ventilation. Thus, it was aimed that the energy consumption for summer cooling would be reduced by creating a microclimate by these breezy voids.


The building, designed in this sensorial manner, also fulfills cognitive criterias like building capability and economy, the perfection of the passenger-baggage flow, the easiness of management and maintenance, growth, flexible use opportunities, fully and without any errors. Inside the open and spacious spaces of terminal, a continuous visual flow is made possible through the designed voids of the gallery as well as a dynamic inner space in which the movement can be observed from anywhere.


Meeting economical optimization criteria and architectural tendency at the same time, the building is designed as a reinforced concrete structure that would exhibit itself fully naked, without any finishing material like stucco or paint. In this manner, it was aimed that the large passenger hall would be modest in the economic value of the materials but assertive in the volumetric impacts of the materials.


A large portion of the landscaping layer on the covering is an extensive green roof which doesn’t need any maintenance in time. The geometric bands on the covering arranged using endemic plants, references the agricultural context which is found in the surrounding area. At the top of the multi-storey garage as it gets close to the ground, the covering alleviates and transforms into a rigid pergola that protects the underneath from the effects of sun, then touches the ground slightly. By this, it is intended that the covering would blur in time and almost merge into the nature slowly. Just as Le Corbusier said, looking at The Çukurova Regional Airport Complex from far away, only sky, grass and landing field is visible.
