Yalın Architecture designed the museum building design in a contemporary simple architectural style. The four-story cube-shaped building in a square plan is covered with weather-resistant steel.

The museum was opened on October 10, 2018, in the “Year of Troy”.

Odunpazarı Modern Museum (OMM)

The Odunpazarı Modern Museum (OMM), designed by Kengo Kuma and Associates in Eskişehir, in the northwest of Turkey, opened its doors to art lovers in 2019.

The museum in the Odunpazari district of Eskisehir was built to house the contemporary art collection of architect and chairperson of Turkish contractor Polimeks, Erol Tabanca. It is made up of a cluster of boxes made of stacked, interlocking timber beams.

Odunpazari, which translates to “firewood market” in Turkish, was once a center for timber trade, and Kengo Kuma and Associates based their concept on this tradition.

The building consists of a group of square-shaped blocks that are surrounded by laminated-timber beams stacked on top of each other. These have been arranged to continue the streetscape of the surrounding Ottoman houses.

We congratulate both museums for their great achievements.
