KEEP THE NATURE PURE – NEMRUT VOLCANO EYE COMPETITION
Van – TURKEY
In nature, there is nothing but nature.
The glory of nature -our planet’s Gods- has developed such perfectly by its purity. The purity which surrounds you, and makes you adapt to it. This theme has tangibly influenced the architecture in Turkey over the past centuries; the desire of unity and then becoming one. This sort of compression in meaning and material will last till it reaches an endpoint, and this ambiguous endpoint will originate a new structure. A structure which expands in every single moment, and this process will be achieved by adherence to the previous pattern. Perhaps, the use of fractal geometry would perfectly fulfill our ultimate goal; not to manipulate this flawless pattern(nature). The investigation of the geometry and topology of the region -which has led to the creation of Nemrut Volcano’s mountain complex- illustrates a simple but firm structure; Pyramid. It also seems to be the reason why every child draws a triangle on a paper whenever he is asked to depict a mountain.
