Koc contemporary art museum

One of Turkey’s most powerful art dynasties, the Koç family, has moved a step closer to building a major museum for its contemporary art collection. The Vehbi Koç Foundation, established in 1969 by Koç Holding, the largest conglomerate in Turkey, has chosen the London-based Grimshaw Architects to design the building.
