Galata Greek Primary School / Galata Rum İlkokulu

Closed as a primary school in 1988 for want of pupils due to Istanbul’s dwindling Rum population, then briefly a nursery school, between 2001 and 2007, spruce and empty ever since, the handsome neoclassical Greek Primary School on the tramway route into Karaköy has found a new lease of life as a highly accessible venue for the first Istanbul Design Biennial and other projects from the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV).
