Alper Derinboğaz was born in 1982 in Ankara. He is an architect who lives and works in Istanbul. He graduated from Istanbul Technical University (2005). He won the UCLA Graduate Award for his master’s studies that he completed in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of California, Los Angeles. He worked as a senior architect in Los Angeles and Istanbul, and won prizes in competitions. He founded Salon in 2009 as an architecture practice in İstanbul.
He has realized public space projects that incorporate new media. The following years three of his built works, Gate, Panorama and Augmented Structures were included in the Arkiv Best Architecture Selection, and Derinboğaz received the Arkitera Young Architect Award in 2011. Derinbogaz became a finalist in YAP Istanbul Modern in 2013 (Young Architects Program in partnership with MoMA PS1).
Currently he practices at Salon Architects as the founding partner and runs a design studio besides the technology seminar on “Media Architecture” at Istanbul Bilgi University as an adjunct lecturer. Although Alper Derinboğaz’s designs greatly vary in scale from the towers to the interiors his work mostly intend to uncover and question the essential elements of the given site or the theme. Derinbogaz’s built work operate through experiences of flux by the use of novel technologies.

All the design work includes subjectivity up to a certain degree. In my opinion questions that is shaped around this crucial area defines the designer’s context as well as his/her interval.
I think the states of in-betweens are interesting matters rather than major leaps from ground zero. This state contains either the in between the disciplines or the urban voids in the middle of the building boundaries. Matter of the voids shape many useful questions that may reposition the role of the architects in the current context.
As designers we should expect different tectonics of architecture to emerge in an era of alternate (digital and physical) beings of human are possible. Making of architecture should transcend the typical forms of profession.In this sense the untested fields between the archetypical disciplines may offer rich and prolific lands for the next architecture to emerge beyond a fashion, beyond being a “style”.
These definitions that evoke experimental architecture are still different than the avant-garde. Because this quest dwells on the existing rather than a parody of the unknown future.
My works try to address some of these questions. Could light define a space? Could same physical space include more layers than only one? Could motion and time be design elements? Could public space invent its own use?
İstanbul is a city that has a sharp distinction between inside and outside, between “us” and “the other”. The urban spaces are same as the vague areas between the disciplines could better build our collective memories and bring shared perspectives for the urban.
I imagine Architectures that inspire people to imagine latent worlds beyond various cost calculations and the practical benefits
