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
