The Yenikapi Project by Peter Eisenman and Aytac Architects is located in Istanbul, and according to DesignBoom, "to archive and take note of its location, the proposed plan includes an archaeological museum and transit building within a large park."
The building is situated over an area in which many historical artifacts were supposedly found, which is why this section was chosen for construction purposes. The piece of architecture does seem to cut right through the center of the site, which is what helps to give the design a distinct nature. Moreover, complex walkways jut out from the grid-like sides of the building, allowing visitors to wander through the park area and take in the scenery. The project is still a concept now, but will hopefully be built soon.
