BACKGROUND

The artful aquatic gardens of Su Bahçeleri reconnect Istanbul to the blue waters of the Bosporus. By extending the city’s rich green spaces down to meet the lapping banks of the Golden Horn, it creates a triumphal terminus for luxury cruise liners. A versatile public arena, its star and crescent-centred reflection pool can be rapidly drained to magically reveal a patterned plaza beneath its surface. The theme of water is continued by a shallow canal running down the tree-lined retail street, animated by the flags of many nations to reflect Istanbul’s international role as the port where East meets West.
