‘Urban Garden’

‘Urban Garden’, Bursa, Turkey, Yael Brosilovski, University of Nottingham, 2000

Instructor: Neil Leach

Nominated for RIBA Silver Medal, 2000

 

The project was situated within the context of a broader theoretical enquiry about the role of architecture in fostering a sensuous correspondence with the world. As Yael herself puts it: ‘We want to explore architecture like a piece of sensuous art, architecture that desires, feels, listens, looks and touches.’ The scheme that evolved – a landscaped retreat within the centre of Bursa in Turkey – sought to articulate a more corporeal, sensuous and fluid approach to form, feminine, perhaps, rather than feminist. In creating this language of forms she sought to challenge the striated masculine space that surrounded the site, to provide a haven of tranquility.
