The project that united people and the sea

The project is based on the cliffs of the Muratpaşa district in Antalya. The study aims to maintain coastal continuity, to not mask the 'endemic' cliff-like texture and to create dynamic transformations in the region's use of cliffs. At the same time, the project aims to bring people together with the sea just as the Düden Stream meets the sea.
