Diyarbakir Yenisehir Municipality

Nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award 2017.
Diyarbakir, one of the largest cities of Turkey, is located on the Southeast region of the country. It is famous with its rich cultural and historical background. Even though the ongoing turmoil in the region is disturbing its population, the city keeps its vibrant life.

In 2005, Uygur Architects won the national architectural competition organized for the design of the Diyarbakir Yenisehir Municipality’s new building. However the municipality changed the concept and the lot of the building in seven years time and Uygur Architects started to redesign it for the new lot and requirements in 2012. After the redesign, recently finished building opened to public in 2016.
