    Urban Furniture Design

    Bursa, the first capital of the Ottoman state, has a common architectural geometry among traces of different cultures: the dome. The history of the dome in Bursa, which was also of great importance for pre-Islamic religions, begins with churches and monasteries. After being accepted as an indispensable element of Islamic architecture, the number of domes rising across the city continued to increase rapidly.

    During the design process of the project, domes, belonging to different periods in Bursa, were analyzed in different contexts: construction year, architectural style and technique. The measurement of the domes, which were examined at the city scale, from the human scale, gave the project the aim of adding a different dimension to the interaction between a human and a dome. In order to ensure the contact of the people of the city with the dome, dimension studies were carried out, and the domes of different structures were scaled and reflected in the project, giving meaning to the design. Contact with the dome is provided by integrating it into furniture design with dome forms, which also provives different functionalities at different points of the city.
