Heritage is transmitted from one generation to another historical or cultural value. Heritage can also be understood as a physical “object”. Objects represent the emotional and semantic power of personal experiences, memory. Object are used to explain cultural relationship and sense of self. Objects, as social meanings, constitute the material part of culture. It is important that the objects are heritage because they have sociality and urban memory. For instance, TV has made us evaluate our time together with our family, especially in the evening, with a habit from the past and the candle is another object that is also used today in churches or in some rituals. Kültürpark is one of the regions with the highest density since it has a large number of private properties and important structures around it. Kültürpark is a big space to escape from this intensity. At the same time, this place also plays an important role as it is southwest path entrance to the fair. Kültürpark is a place that has a lot of social activities in itself and is formed by human communities. Nighty one Izmir international fair is fed by many exhibitions, concert and theater plays as well as daily life activities. In this respect, Kültürpark is a common area in Izmir regarding urban memory. Therefore, in another sense, I am also making an object library using an activation of a storage space of memory through objects. The object library consists of two main title collection and transfer. After passing certain acceptances, the objects are divided into categories and brought to the place of the first collection and stocked. The stories of the objects are listened to and recorded. In order to read and understand the heritage meaning of the object, the objects are exhibited, and their stories are presented to be told. Pats offer the opportunity to experience the accumulated objects more closely. Stack is the first accumulation point. Walls of memories where object colleges appear, and short stories follow. The narrative space of the object for listening to other people’s stories.
