Kaplankaya Dense Pack Construction Progresses

Steven Holl remarks during site visit to the Kaplankaya Dense Pack housing currently under construction: “the quality of space and light here, the idea of the ecological landscape, the dense pack in three sections—under the ground, in the ground, and over the ground—a concept that we made in 2006 and it’s finally under construction.”

Overlooking the Aegean Sea in Akbuk, Türkiye, a new eco-reserve of small town fragments, like islands in a preserved landscape of cultivated natural vegetation, will be characterized by advanced technologies in sustainability, while also anchored in the poetic reverie of the site.
