about project

HALE basically consists of 5 segments. These segments represent the civilizations lived in Istanbul . The segments are set parallel onto each other. The basic idea is that the light reaches outside from these segments getting purified. If the segments are slide to sides, crescents are formed one within the other on the floor and the ceiling.
