The Nemrut Volcano Eyes competition results have just been announced with first prize going to the Upservatory, a mobile hot air balloon platform. This competition tasked participants with envisioning a visitor observation platform to be constructed atop Nemrut, a volcano located in eastern Turkey. Positioned at an altitude of 2,800 meters at the southern edge of the dormant volcano, the intent of this new landmark is to provide unobstructed views overlooking the extraordinary caldera and its internal lakes, as well as the immense Lake Van to the east.
1st Prize: Upservatory By Fernando Irizarry, Marcos Ortiz, and Gabriel Rivera (University of Puerto Rico)
2nd Prize: Nemrut Caldera Observation Route By Keremcan Kirilmaz and Erdem Batirbek
3rd Prize: A Walk Beyond The Edge By Giuseppe Pastonesi, Desislava Georgieva, Marchela Varbanova, and Nina Gerosa
BB Green Award: Obsidian & Steel By Sam Naylor and Elaine Stokes
