The deadline for the project ended on February 29, 2012 and the project presentations were made by 4 architectural companies on 23 March 2012. As a result of the work done by the elective delegation IAOIZ technical delegation and university faculty members, the project prepared by the M + D Architecture company operating in Izmir, was selected as the most appropriate project.
