Architecture, Building and Structure Design The Mall Mixed-use by Ekin Ç. Turhan - Onat Öktem The Mall is located on the desert. The design idea is based on dissolving the building program to create a cultural and commercial district out of it, which will influence its surrounding. The urban spaces integrated to the complex will house many activities and enrich the cultural interaction in the area. Instead of acting like a detached closed building, it will support the street life in the whole area. The layout of the complex, orientation of the buildings and the facade details are designed to support the most-effective use of natural sources.
