There is a new tourist information center for Istanbul; So? Architects have constructed the information center in Rotterdam of all places. The concept behind the off location center is to tie in with 400 years of diplomatic relationships between Holland and Turkey. The display itself features topography constructed out of used pallets and plastic tubes for flair.

Istanbul-based So? Architects have developed an informal tourist information exhibit about Istanbul, where unlike other centers, the installation is shown in Rotterdam. The conception consists of the perplexity of 400 years in diplomatic relationships between Holland and Turkey. The atmospheric space allows the visitor to have a dynamic interpretation of the surrounding setup.
