Odunpazarı Modern Museum, a new cultural centre designed by Kengo Kuma & Associates, opens in Eskişehir

OMM – Odunpazari Modern Museum, a major new museum and distinctive architectural landmark by Kengo Kuma and Associates celebrates its public opening on Sunday 8 September. Founded by art collector and businessman Erol Tabanca, the museum is the first of its kind in Eskişehir, a university city in north west Turkey.

OMM’s innovative design, by the acclaimed Japanese architects behind the new V&A Dundee in the UK, provides a bright and spacious new home for the 1,000-piece collection of modern and contemporary art housed inside the museum. With its stacked timber design, inspired by the surrounding streetscape of Odunpazari and its history as a timber trading market, the 4,500m2 museum stands as a new landmark that reconnects the town with its heritage, and as a progressive cultural development for Eskişehir and the Central Anatolia region at large.
