Dear Archnet-Members,

Can anyone provide me with information on modern architecture and professional practices in Istanbul?

Thanks in advance,

Dear Fabian,

This is a big topic! What specifically do you need to know? There are many many firms.

To get a sense of Turkish modern architecture, you can visit the Arkitera Architects' Database, a great comprehensive library of contemporary Turkish architecture organized by architect. You will need to register to view the database (note: the language toggle between English/Turkish is at the right upper hand corner): Here you will find biographic information, chronological list of built works, photographs of projects, etc.

A smaller (yet still large) set of projects are found on ArchNet. Here's a link to all architects/firms listed in Turkey:

You can also view all Turkish contemporary projects listed on Archnet at:
