The Pazar: Printed Research
In 2006 SANALarc started to document the tectonic structures of Istanbul’s street markets in terms of their components, structural methods, use of urban space and economic networks. Over the years, our curiosity about these ephemeral structures and their making process has transformed into one of our studio's key research projects. The research is focused on The Pazar Making's micro and macro urban design and architectural aspects as well as the social and political implications of the markets in social anthropology, social economy and spatial policy.
