We are happy to share new photographs of our BerKM – Bergama Cultural Center, which opend to the public in October 2016.   Today, two different images exist together in Bergama. One of them is the ancient city of Pergamon. The acropolis presents the physical appearance of a city culture built upon a rooted civilization. In contrast, the city of Bergama today, laying below Acropolis, displays a rather rural city texture. The urban texture of a typical small town started yielding itself to apartments. Is there any possibility to consider a relationship between the Acropolis and Bergama? The question waits for the description of a place that will host Bergama’s cultural life without avoiding the memory of the place.   photocredit @Studio Majo/Engin Gerçek     Read more

Everytime I come here I think the Biennales are getting less and less meaningful. The weather is great… I don’t feel like going to the Arsenale at all. It is prosecco day today. We’ll think about tomorrow later. The world has become such an interesting place. Abba is playing in San Marco. Money money money! Read more
First thing we do will be to go to the Arsenale with my friends who have arrived a couple of days ago. It is time to leave the exhausted and reckless attitude behind. I am really curious about the performance of Darzana, the only actor of the Turkish Pavillion, as an installation piece. The photos I have seen are quite promising. When I had first heard of the project, I had thought that its conceptual background was quite strong. A nice gesture from an old and unused shipyard Haliç to Arsenale, another old shipyard which embraces a different identity today. Although I have not yet seen the exhibition or the Darzana itself, I can easily talk about the reception given in the honour of it in the magnificent ballroom of Hotel Monaco. It was quite an impeccable reception apart from the heat as it got more and more crowded and the risotto which was a little more runny than it should have been. The architectural celebrities of our neighborhood were there in full force. The art world owes a lot to Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts. However I really was not expecting to see Paul Finch coming in in […] Read more
Starting the tour from Arsenale again. It has turned into a habit. How many times have I been to the Venice Biennale? I guess I don’t want to think about it. Were previews always this crowded? It is very hot and humid. Weather App says it is 21 degrees but it definitely feels 30. Alejandro Aravena arrives at the same time as us. And starts addressing the crowd gathering around him. Unfortunately in Spanish. Trying to understand won’t make sense. I dive into the darkness. The theme is quite intense, I think to myself. Reporting from the front is not an issue that can be handled easily. It is hard to stay away from cliches, especially trying not to fall into shiny and attractive traps of populism is tricky. A large banner with tiny letters welcomes me. ‘Is it possible to create a public space in a private commision?’ Come on. I have been cursed at so many times because I wanted to perform the profession of architecture in a way to bring a positive outcome to this question. Another question follows: ‘Is it possible to minimize the impact of building in a public space?’ Of course it is I […] Read more
