The lonely and quiet beauty of Istanbul: Haydarpasa Train Station
One of the unforgettable scenes of Yeşilçam movies; The lead actor comes out of the gate of Haydarpasa Train Station and looks at Istanbul. There is even a line that is cliché remaining from these films. With the wooden suitcase in his hand and the hope from the young people from Anatolia, Haydarpasa Garının steeples from Istanbul to Istanbul: I will beat Istanbul!
So Haydarpaşa symbolizes Istanbul. I'm sure there isn't even a person who doesn't follow Haydarpaşa in Kadıköy-Karaköy or Eminönü or Kadıköy-Beşiktaş ferry. The beauty that is hidden in the beauty of the architecture, the position that makes you feel in the throat, the fans on the roof with the fans who admire. Personally, I watch him on every Kadikoy ferry, long as I get closer, I want to take pictures of him every time I see him. I have dozens of photos of Haydarpasa Station that look almost the same but actually have different feelings each time.
I've recently begun to look longer for a long time because the building will undergo a very big change. History will disappear. Therefore I want to look long long and enjoy this image. I'm afraid that the image that will be formed after the change will look like the irony of the Demirören shopping center on İstiklal Street. Yes, at the end of March will be completely closed to the gar building will enter into a two-year renovation, and when the output of the sparkling sparkling age, all the historical fabric will be a crowded, soulless structure. The worst part of this is to witness the disappearance of history and to do nothing. I could only do what I could, and I took a lot of photos without losing their history. I've taken some meaningful photos with a shot so sincere that I can put myself in the tracks. And this article. Unfortunately, that's what I can do. I wish I could do more. I'd like to get Haydarpasha out of this renting crazy. I wish that this lonely and quiet building would stay the same.
The most beautiful information about my country where I could find the most detailed information about my country, Haydarpasa Train Station in 1872. In spite of Istanbul's economic importance, Sultan Abdulaziz interfered with the lack of a railroad. First Istanbul-Izmit line was built. After the 1888, the Anatolian expeditions began. In the 1906, due to the inadequacy of the existing railway station, II. Abdülhamit asked for a new large building. Two German architects, Otto Ritter and Helmuth Cuno, accepted the project and started construction. German architects and engineers, Italian stone masters and Turkish workers worked for the construction. The building was opened in 1908.
Because of the services to the region where the station is located, III. As the name of Haydarpaşa was given to the pashas of the Selim period, the station and the building were named as Haydarpaşa. An example of a neoclassical architecture, the building is built on the 21 pile, each with a length of 1100 mt. In the World War I, the British captured the Haydarpaşa station. After the Turkish Republic was founded in 1923 years 1927 but the company has passed the station in the republic of Turkey. During this period, a sabotage at the 1917 was destroyed by the explosion at which the war materials were stored and the building was severely damaged. In 1979, the shipyard was damaged due to a ship wreck that took place off the coast of Haydarpaşa. The newly renovated building was on the roof due to carelessness during the renovation work on the last November 2010. The fact that television broadcasts were broadcasted live for hours was actually a precursor of this new plan. Because there was no renovation work after the fire, the roof had only the front wall and there was a big gap behind it.
Haydarpasa station has been involved in some of the worldwide studies. In 2009 this short film was shot as a perfume ad. Again the famous Garbage group's song "Run baby run" was displayed in the video clip.
For the year of 2012, the Haydarpaşa Train Station was followed by the World Monuments Fund, the World Monuments Fund. This plan was made considering that the Marmaray project will affect the position and future of the station. Now I wonder what action this institution will take for the ugliness that will occur with this shopping center project. Because the purpose of the institution is to preserve the cultural structure of this monumental building.
I hope that Haydarpaşa will not be transferred to the future generations. I hope that Istanbul preserves this beauty.
This is exactly what I wrote with this feeling, and after the 2 week after I published, I received praise from my photographs from a Canadian journalist. And the best news is that this journalist has started a project to save Haydarpaşa from far away. The photos you see are about to spread all over the world as images of this project. The worst part of the situation is that a journalist wanted to shout to prevent the demolition so far. I hope that this project and all projects for Haydarpaşa will be successful Bu
