Old Galata Bridge
Istanbul

Old Galata Bridge that has been constructed by Machinebau Ausburg Nürnberg on 1912 continued to connect two sides of Haliç for 80 years as one of the symbolic structures of Istanbul. This historical bridge that could not longer be used after the fire in 1992 has returned back to life with Istanbul Design Week organized in year 2005. by protecting its historical texture old Galata Bridge had been converted into an activity area and it plays an important role in highlighting the cultural heritage of the city as well as Turkish designs. Also the bridge provides a very mystical atmosphere for participants and visitors. Also as the bridge is made up of different parts and due to its architectural structure it can create flexible areas, which is a very important aspect. The most important advantage of the bridge is that it creates a connection point between “design” and “sea”. As “Water” is used as a design element or an exhibition unit both the participants and visitors are invited to have a unique experience.

More About Istanbul

Istanbul (historically Byzantium and later Constantinople; see the other names of Istanbul) is the largest city of Turkey and the third largest city in the world. The city covers 27 districts of the Istanbul province.It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbor known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) side of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world which is situated on two continents. In its long history, Istanbul served as the capital city of the Roman Empire (330–395), the East Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). The city was chosen as joint European Capital of Culture for 2010. The historic areas of Istanbul were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.
