  1. If Madrid gives a good presentation I think they'll take this. Both Istanbul and Tokyo failed at answering major concerns about their bids.Those answers were not persuasive.
  2. it is very very cheap to use Tsunami story. Be cool a little bit!
  3. at last we are gonna see Masterplan video at last
  4. Home Stay Programme is a greeat idea! guys that's a good prsentation i guess
  5. there are some amazing pictures of Istanbul at this link, also some pictures of the existing venues and proposed locations http://fotogaleri.ntvmsnbc.com/istanbula-kusbakisi.html?position=0
  6. you can see the renders of all venues here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.517610784947871.1073741842.320486461326972&type=1
  7. you can see al renders from here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.517610784947871.1073741842.320486461326972&type=1
  8. they look really awesome!! you can feel the spirit, just amazing!
  9. yeah there will be a challenge but they're building another underwater tunnell for vehicles and the tunnell ends like by the stadium. So there will be an Olympic Lane between the village and Bosphorus area, they don't have to use the Bosphorus bridge. If they use this express way it will take 15-20 minutes to reach the stadium. Also Maracana is away from the Olympic Village so they might have the same problem in terms of logistics.
  10. more renders here Velodrome, Archery, Rowing, Beach Volleyball venues http://fotogaleri.ntvmsnbc.com/haydarpasaya-bogazici-stadi.html?position=0
  11. there's a support video made by the most watched Turkish sports channel http://www.ntvspor.net/video-galeri/istanbul-2020-olimpiyatini-hak-ediyor
  12. i don't want to sound arrogant or offensive but that video looks so cheap. 2016 Masterplan video was a lot better!
  13. Izmir would be the only reasonable choice after Istanbul. I think it is a well structured, middle sized city which is very suitable to organize olympic games. It has venues already in place which were used during Universiade 2005 and better transportation infastructure than Istanbul. Rail system is great especially with under going projects.
  14. without traffic you can go to the furthest venue from olympic village in 20 minutes by car. Everything you have seen on venue map is connected with express ways. So it's not that far away actually without traffic. If they reserve olympic lanes only for olympic transportation, traffic won't be a problem. There is space to build extra lanes to the highway and express ways.
  15. no, there is no render yet. I've only shared the existing ones. The render I used was something planned before, not specifically for Olympics

  18. In this topic, i'm going to try to share the pictures and updates from proposed venues. Also we can use this thread to let you know about the most recent infastructure developements in the city.

  19. I think Turkey won't withdraw from Euro 2020 and screw both of its bids and it's a shame, Istanbul could have taken the Olympics.
  20. and also I started to believe this whole euro-olympics conflict might be a strategy. if Istanbul is accepted as a candidate, football federation will retreat and government will focus on olympics and it'll show how much Istanbul wants the games. It may turn out as a persuasive argument for the upcoming presentations.
  21. Mystery of Bosphorus Stadium was solved! Minister of Sports and Youth declared that Bosphorus Stadium will have the capacity of 100 000 seats and everyone will be able to see the European side while they are watching the opening ceremony. He also said the stadium will be temporary and the seats will be able to be removed and carried to different cities for different sports activities. So in this case we can understand that if Istanbul wins there will be an opening ceremony by the sea which will face with the historical peninsula, it will not be a standar circular stadium but half of it will be facing to Bosphorus. I think it might be really epic and this temporary stadium thing now makes sense. It will be like Singapoure and Guangzhou but will be huger. Now I call this a real WOW factor source, but it's in Turkish http://spor.milliyet.com.tr/haydarpasa-ya-100-bin-kisilik-stad/spor/spordetay/02.03.2012/1510225/default.htm
  22. so stupid to use it as a entertainment venue, it doesn't sound feasible. We have 3 stadiums which are used as concert stadiums + Olympic Stadium + this...I think it's too much.
