The project area is surrounded by Konak Alsancak İzmir fairground.  In this special location, a different interface focused on public space within the city is reconsidered. Cumhuriyet Boulevard in the existing interface; is defined by closed surfaces. In the project area, an alternative perspective has been defined in which the city dwellers can easily be included with the spaces created at ground, underground and above ground levels.

An effective circulation axis was created by widening the street connecting the Cumhuriyet Boulevard to the project area. The level of the public space was changed by discussing the square-building-street relationship in the widening street. Public space constructs the space and proposes a new meeting point in the city.
