Building Name: Eyüp Cultural Center and Marriage Hall
Building Location: Istanbul, Turkey
Architect: Emre Arolat Architects
Structural: Çelik Yap
Contractor: Ayhas İnşaat
Interior Design: EAA
Status: Completed

AE Interests:  Mixed use of diverse programs (Marriage Hall, Theater, and Conference Space).  Ramp access to the coastline and surrounding neighborhoods creates a “structural landscape”.  Transparency allows for inhabitants to be connected to the mixture of activities that take place in the building (one marriage every 15 minutes on average).
