Architecture Competition MICROHOME 2020 Green prize winners – Ali Bugra Cebeci and Oguz Kemal Basar

Ali Bugra Cebeci and Oguz Kemal Basar from Italy

Both of the participants are two newly graduated architects. They have concluded their academic careers in both bachelor's and master’s programmes of the School of Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan.

Ali Bugra Cebeci got his master’s degree from the "Architecture and Urban Design" programme with his final thesis on “Experimental Application of Tensile Structures in Residential Architecture”.

Oguz Kemal Basar finished his master’s degree in the "Landscape Architecture, Landscape Heritage" programme with his final thesis on “The Theoretical Study and the Design of the War Landscapes”.

We are currently trying to lay the foundations of a research-based architectural studio called "A30 Architecture". Our goal is to propose architectural solutions to find answers for environmental problems, combining our academic backgrounds in landscape and urban design.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/individuals have been involved?

During our academic career, we had a chance to develop several projects together. Even though the projects had different scales, we decided to focus on ecological architecture, based on environmental and cultural issues.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture has to reflect the notion of “awareness” through space. The knowledge and emotions combine as the synthesis of scientific and artistic expressions. Like an author, an architect must understand how to compose and pick the correct parameters to create mindful solutions to related issues. Each individual has the knowledge of architecture which comes from our ancestors and mixed with our instincts.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

We participate in architecture vision competitions because, as young architects, we can develop our skills on an international stage. It is an excellent opportunity to discipline ourselves and push forward our design limits.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

If you like to express your thoughts in the most expansive way, we strongly recommend it. It is a great way to evaluate yourself while gaining new experiences and improving your abilities.
