Atatürk Cultural Center (Turkish: Atatürk Kültür Merkezi), also simply called AKM, is a cultural center in Istanbul. As the focal point of Taksim Square, it is not only a multi-purpose cultural center and opera house, but an icon of Istanbul. The AKM is considered an important example of Turkish architecture from the 1960s. (Wikipedia)
