Istanbul to host Turkey's first property and architecture expo and awards
|Thursday, 11 September 2008|
Istanbul will host Turkey's first international property and architecture exhibition next month in a move that is regarded as putting the country firmly on the mainstream property map.
As well as featuring real estate experts and planning professionals, the exhibition includes visits from some of the world's leading architects including Nigel Dancey of London based Foster & Partners.
It is the first time that many organisations will have been represented in Turkey. The European Public Real Estate Association, US based Portman Holdings and others from Holland, the UK and the US will be present.
One of the highlights will be the ArkiPARC Awards' Award Ceremony to be held on the last night. There will be awards in three categories – real estate, architecture and construction.
The real estate awards cover residential, office, hotel, shopping centre, alternative investments and mixed use projects whose construction has been completed in Turkey in the last five years.
In architecture there are two main awards. One is the client's award, in the public and the private sector, for those who have supported the production of quality architectural applications since 2005. The young architect's award is for those aged under 40.
In construction the awards cover materials used in production, conformity to standards, resilience over time and the environment.
ArkiPARC 2008, organised by Arkitera Architecture, is taking place at the Harbiye Istanbul on October 15-17. It is supported by the Istanbul 2010 European Cultural Capital Agency, the Urban Land Institute and the Independent Architectural Platform.
