13th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia
TRACES OF CENTURIES & FUTURE STEPS
Palazzo Bembo, Venice, Italy
‘Traces of Centuries & Future Steps’ was held between Aug 29th to November 25th 2012 at Palazzo Bembo with the participation of 56 invited Architects from 26 countries, and was part of the 13th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.
EAA - Emre Arolat Architecture, through three of its recent projects, presented its design practice focused on “situation,” where projects are developed through the potentials inherent to it. This is a practice based on identifying the individual problems of each project, of each special situation, distinguishing their particular inputs, and looking for answers to the situation that has now become specific through a description that is as stratified as possible. The “quest for awareness” in the process of redefining each time what is to be conceived has formed the main motivation of Sancaklar Mosque, RDKM -Yalova Raif Dinçkök Cultural Center and Yalıkavak Palmarina projects, all of which were designed in accordance with their own distinctive situations.
