Public Design


Within the scope of the Izmir Mediterranean Academy's call for design projects in 2015; It was chosen as an idea project.

Basmane Environmantal Design Proposals project coordinated by Izmir History Project Centre and designed and developed by Nesne EMT, aims to bring Basmane, where different layers, cultures, stories and paths intersect,  back to its status as a focus of attraction.

Although Basmane is an extension of Historical Kemeraltı Bazaar, the two areas have disconnected in time which has led Izmir citizens to remove the region from their agenda.

The design proposals for the area are built  on the concepts such as “encounter, intersection, meeting and leaving traces”

The starting point of the project is to contribute to Izmir History Project which aims to bring revival to the region, underline the values of Basmane and create sustainable awareness about the area.
