Designed by Dinkoff Architects and Engineers, Rock-Sette is a self-sufficient and non-polluting disaster prevention and education center for Istanbul, Turkey. The project draws in water from the creek on the south side, purifies it, and stores it in a series of ponds. The cool air from these ponds is brought indoors to cool the interior naturally via diffusers in the floor plates and walls. Additionally, a set of solar panels on the south-facing roof are able to satisfy all the facility’s electrical power needs.
