SCADA Ges Data Production Center

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
SCADA Data Production Center, situated in the middle of a 20 million sqm solar power plant, is an headquarter to collect information and do research about solar energy in a desert. We aim to derive the building directly from the land it stands on. A hybrid construction method that we have empowered with this archaic construction technique, which is frequently used in West Asia and Ancient Rome, with the technological skills of our age. We create the monolithic gradient wall element by compressing the material obtained by mixing pebbles, sand, silt and clay in different proportions into GRC molds. We attach great importance to the ability to feel and touch the special texture of the soil and to express its natural language.
We design an headquarter exist directly from the soil that stands on in only desert climatic area in Turkey.
