Alper Derinboğaz is an architect who lives and practices architecture 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 won prizes in competitions including UIA Celebrating Cities. He founded Salon in 2009 as an architecture practice in İstanbul.
He has realized the first large scale public space projects that incorporate the new media technologies. The following years three of his built works, Gate, Panorama and Augmented Structures were included in the Arkiv Best Architecture Selection, and received the Arkitera Young Architect Award in 2011. Derinbogaz became a finalist in YAP Istanbul Modern (with MoMA PS1) in 2013. Derinbogaz represented Turkey in the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale in its debut year of the Pavilion of Turkey in 2014.
Currently he practices at Salon Architects as the founding partner and runs the architectural design studio at the Istanbul Technical 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.

I am happy to announce "FORM OF DOING my Architectural Design Studio V !"This studio is looking for new strategies to create community spaces inside the city.Imagine people craving for producing, sharing and innovating. Look at cities of the post modern citizens. Develop forms of doing. Look for a relationship between a physical environment and how we use it, experience it and develop it. Understand Francis Bacon. Look at Albretch Dürer. Remember Bremante."* Background artwork from Tauba Auerbach

“Alper Derinbogaz’s “Modalities of the Spontaneous” Series delivers a new way to read the stratification of Istanbul in terms of social and physical thresholds, economic developments and traces of memory on the banks of the ridge extending from Taksim to Levent; a bold attempt to decipher the codes of evolutionary character of Istanbul’s urbanization adventure.Derinboğaz’s proposal is a provocative way of experiencing the evolutionary urbanization story of the city thru 2.75×2.75m sized three dimensional frames which the viewer is enforced to spend time and ponder upon these strata unlike a passive observer of a conventional map.
Moreover, Derinboğaz’s new presentation method also argue that old-school revolutionary approach of modernist urbanism and its conventional analysis tools should be challenged by emerging countries’ evolutionary urbanism models and appropriate research tools.” Ömer Kanıpak, Excerpt from Places of Memory (Istanbul: İKSV, 2014): 96
“Our century is marked by a wash of data, flooding out of explosive urbanization. Humans and numbers, it seems, are now densely packed, dynamic, and essential. Yet with that same density, they threaten to become invisible.‘Augmented Structures’ is, first and foremost, rather lovely to look at. It’s a kind of architectural performance, in glitching, flickering contrasts of sound and light. Maybe the scale of transformation requires something aesthetic.” Peter Kirn, Excerpt from The Augmented City (createdigitalmotion.com, 2012)
