Back in December 2013 WAN published a shortlist of eight practices who had made the final stages of a competition to design a 100m-tall observation and broadcast tower in the city of Çanakkale, Turkey. This competition has now been won by IND [Inter.National.Design] + Powerhouse Company in collaboration with ABT.
The brief, published by WAN’s Business Information Service, stipulated that alongside the technological requirements of a broadcasting tower, the structure must include public amenities for educational, recreational and exhibition use. The winning proposal achieves this by uniting the different functional and spatial requirements in a single gesture.
