Gordion Excavation House

According to our site analysis, I aimed for this project to be in harmony with the surrounding village and for the excavation house to reflect the character of the village. Therefore, while separating the buildings according to certain functions, I also aimed to solve the circulation of the project by creating a unified structure. While I design my buildings with bricks like the old buildings in Yassıhüyük village, I created the structure of the buildings with wood inspired by the Tumulus of Midas. With these materials, I provided both a natural appearance and natural heat and sound insulation.
