The Olbia Social Centre was designed for the Akdeniz University (Mediterranean University) in Antalya, Turkey. The purpose was to provide the campus community with a complex where students could engage in social and cultural activities in an interdisciplinary and intellectual atmosphere that would contribute to their personal development and learning experience. The project comprises an auditorium complex; an amphitheatre; rooms for student societies; a restaurant and various cafés; a book and stationery shop and various other shops; an exhibition area; and a circulation area articulated with public spaces, waterscape elements, plants and sculptures.
