Taci Yurtay – Architect at YEPP. Yurtay Environmental Project Participation-Aachen.
Meet the Jury! | Today we introduce the third member of our Jury: Taci Yurtay
Taci is an architect with a lot of experience in activating abandoned places. His focus lays on creating coherence on a site (sometimes even by creating diversity), where architecture contributes to the vision of an area.
A word from Taci:
How can we combine diversity with unity? The architecture of the submitted plans can provide an absolute added value to this. Maybe they can even design it in such a way that the architecture itself becomes iconic and therefor becomes a brand?
Architecture is a powerful tool to activate; It can put things in different perspectives and change the way people think about a building/space. Architecture as activation is combining functionality with aesthetics, where the wishes of the users form the first starting point.
This competition is a great opportunity to show all these elements and even have a chance the realize your ideas and that is unique! I would say go for it!
Got inspired by the words of Taci ? be creative and participate in the competition.
