Istanbul Financial Centre

Istanbul, Turkey

The objective of this 68-hectare conceptual master plan is to provide a considerable expansion of Turkey’s economic capabilities and reinstate the country’s historic positioning as a leading economic powerhouse of trade and commerce. Gensler’s planning teams in London and Los Angeles have created a unique vision, inspired by Turkey’s historic Topkapi Palace. The concept incorporates bold references to the medieval and walled communities of old Istanbul, including colonnaded courtyards and open spaces, as well as a hierarchy of gate systems to convey a subtle yet secure development.
