Architecture Seminar Series “Anatomy of a City”

The endeavour to comprehend the urban anatomy of Istanbul, which began with the research we carried out for the works series titled “Modalities of the Spontaneous” with which we participated in the Venice Biennale of Architecture, was eventually transformed into a long-lasting topic of enquiry for us. We attempted to perceive Istanbul beyond the usual linear narrative of history, as a network that expands and becomes more stratified under the influences of ownership, infrastructure and topography. Taking these enquiries as a starting point, we have developed a number of exhibitions and structures, as well as relationships between structures. One of these is the Istanbul City Museum. Anatomy of a City is about the various processes through which we sought answers to the questions of what sort of connections should be established in telling the story of a complex and ever-evolving city like Istanbul, and what kind of an infrastructure should be laid underneath it all.

Alper Derinboğaz received his undergraduate degree with honours from Istanbul Technical University in 2005. He was presented with the Graduate Award at UCLA where he continued his postgraduate studies with a Fulbright Scholarship. In 2010 he founded his own architectural practice, Salon. Derinboğaz, whose three built structures were included in the Best Architectural Works of the Year Selection in 2011, also received the Arkitera Young Architect Award in the same year. His projects that range from installations to museums have received numerous awards, including the German Design Award, Architizer A+, and the Plan Award for Innovative Architecture. Derinboğaz also runs an architectural design studio at Istanbul Technical University, and his works that focus on the contemporary planning of Istanbul were included in the Pavilion of Turkey at the 14th Venice Biennale of Architecture.

The event is free of charge.

Invitations available from the Akbank Sanat ticket office on the event day, one hour before the event begins.
