Design Library
The historical building of design library is situated 45km away from the city centre of Izmir, in Urla. This is a small town in a rural setting of grape yards, pine forests, and seaside with various gastronomy destinations opened in recent years which helped the town to regain its importance that roots back in the ancient times. As a private initiative, the design library has been created by Prof. Dr. Tevfik Balcıoğlu by the restoration of a unique small school dates to the Ottoman times. Besides being home to the collection of books on design it also works as a venue for screenings, seminars and music performances.
