Competition: Bursa Atatrk Sports Hall National Competition Rank: 3rd Place
The Bursa Atatrk Sports Hall Competition proposal makes a neighborly relation with The National Garden in the south. The main subject that is prioritized is to conceal the structural installation inside of the defined green context.

Due to the fact that the building has a commercial purpose, the static balance of the long facade building is energized by the diagonals of the suspensions for vertical landscaping as sun and noise protections. Horizontal cornices are complemented by massive vases with a relief stone surface. Lower part of Doroshenko Street is devoid of landscaping, so the sides of the houses, which are created from the deepening of the red line, are used as planes for vertical landscaping.

Competition:Konkur stanbul | Commemorating Mimar Sinan in skdarRank: Honorable Mention
Even though Istanbul and bosphorus have this extraordinarily charming effect on people especially, at first sight, we can easily say that it could not be compared to any epic fairy-tale-land illustrations of bosphorus from the last two centuries. The peak aims to greet this, to commemorate a unique person of history, Architect Sinan the Great who has designed a magnificent amount of buildings around the world, and especially in Istanbul, that has changed the way of understanding and maintaining the city and its culture. Even today, architects are learning from his works. This legacy of sinan has created a valuable history and topography for the city that strengthened the epic silhouette of the city for centuries.
