WE WON ONE OF THREE PRIZES IN SOKE URBAN DESIGN COMPETITION!

Söke is an Aegean town close to Miletus and Priene, famous Hellenistic cities. The town has a depreviated building stock, the old central quarter is under traffic pressure, and it is not adequate anymore for the inhabitants. The central river is dirty and the town is not facing it. Our project is suggesting a river-facing new city, which is organized around a new downtown that is spatially connected to the old CBD core. The old CBD is pedestrianised, and larg-scale social infrastructure is placed close to Bodrum-Dydma motorway, considering high levels of accessibility.
