This International Architecture Competition is called in order to select the design of an Istanbul Disaster Prevention and Education Centre, which is to be the first institution in Turkey with the intended facilities.  
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality is willing to establish a centre fully equipped with adequate technology and facilities in order to be prepared against a disaster that may affect Istanbul and to develop public consciousness about the disasters and specifically about earthquakes. The centre will also be hosting relevant courses, congresses and seminars.
Equipped with visual and audio educational appliances and simulation systems, the centre will allow experiencing earthquake, hurricane, fire fighting, smoke, liquefaction, tsunami, first aid and emergency communications. It is also intended to offer information to the visitors through a planetarium, library, seminar/meeting halls, information boards, etc. which are to be designed using the latest technology.
