The complex which has the example of traditional vernecular architecture with its stone cladding, spacious eaves and window proportions integrates the history and future based on civilizational and cultural sense of belonging.

With approximete of 130000 m2 closed and 40000 m2 open spaces, the center planned as a complex which connects different functions in the underground as a single building by occupying the minimum floor area.
