About this product
- DescriptionIn the eastern Mediterranean, on the west coast of Turkey (the ancient Halicarnassus), atop a headland 450ft above sea level, an extraordinary new building has been constructed. This book unveils the processes involved in the creation of the Kaplankaya Club House by OAB (the Office of Architecture in Barcelona), from its initial conception to the development and construction. This is a timeless structure, combining both the essence of the abstract in modern architecture with the use of local construction techniques and traditional materials, resulting in the building's intense relationship with the Mediterranean landscape and light. Architects OAB have been involved in a huge number of recent international projects in France, Italy, Morocco, Turkey, the USA, Brazil and Mexico.
