In the eastern Mediterranean, on the west coast of Turkey, facing the Greek islands of Lemos and Patmos, close to Bodrum, the ancient Halicarnassus, atop a headland 450ft above sea level (longitude 27° 24’ 30.63” E; latitude 37° 19’ 14.46” N), a new building is constructed. This book unveils the process of creation of the Kaplankaya Clubhouse, from its initial ideas to the development of construction, a time-less structure, seeking both the essence of abstraction in Modern Architecture confronted with the use of local construction techniques and materials, and its intense relationship with the Mediterranean landscape and light.
