İstanbul Velodrome

  • Project Date: 2021
  • Location: İstanbul Yenikapı Dolgu Alanı
  • Client: İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediyesi
  • Project Team: Tülin Hadi, Cem İlhan, Efe Bahri Toz, Ayşegül Ersin, Sezin Beldağ

The Istanbul Velodrome, which is planned to be built in the Yenikapı filling area, has been designed in accordance with the criteria of the “International Cycling Federation” (UCI). The concept of the project is to reach the tribunes with a ramp that surrounds the track and has a similar form with the form of the track. Just like the form of the velodrome, this curvilinear ramp allows to look at the track from different points, and also creates an alternative open tribune where the fans can follow the race when needed. The facility’s needs program is partially recessed and hidden under this curved ramp. Athletes’ dressing rooms, common toilets for visitors, a bicycle club, a repair shop and a small cafeteria meet the needs of the facility.
