IKON TOWER

151,000 Sq. M

ISTANBUL, TURKEY

2007

In Ikon, we have combined 3 elliptic towers into one single building. The design was inspired by the hanging gardens of Babylon. A testament to that are the gardens and the green spaces, which can be found on some of the higher floors of the building. This is why the word ‘Ikon’ is a very suitable name to represent the iconic nature of this proposal. In brief, the Ikon project is an investigation about the quality of life in the city and about what is envisaged for the future. The project site was a deciding factor for the form of the building, as well as its proportions.
Trying to make use of Ikon’s delicate form was a challenge. In addition, Ikon tower is designed to be completely earthquake proof and fire-resistant.
