Life Drawing in Istanbul - 5 min sketch
Complete Project Design
Including concept and feasibility.
Over 55000m2 of land with approximately 50 houses and a small hotel, spa, fitness and sports areas, market area, organic farm, olive press, restaurant and cafe, shops (for produce) workshops for arts and crafts, market area, squares and meeting places and spiritual space.
While painting the Suzani I contemplated the creative process of the person who made it years ago. Then I layered Istanbul and the Suzani together. The view is from Emirgan.
