Despite architectural production is becoming a very important actor of worldwide economy; our country is experiencing an introverted and regressive period of contemporary architectural practice of both in urban planning and in architectural scale. In the 2015-2016 period, as Turkish Association of Architects in Private Practice, we will create opportunities for our members to expand abroad. In this process, we plan to concentrate on projects that will help our young members to own new, creative experiences and successes. We will also generate events that will appeal to architecture students. In addition, we plan to inform our members about legal developments. We intend to keep our sensitivity in protecting the environment and conceptualizing healthy and qualified living spaces in both public and private spheres of Istanbul.
