AIA New York Center of Architecture opens its doors to the public for a very special book launch by Alper Derinbogaz. He is the founder of Salon, the internationally renowned architecture studio based in Istanbul, Berlin, and recently Los Angeles is known for its award-winning projects such as the Museum of Istanbul, pandemic-resistant office design Ecotone and zero-emission Villa Topos.
The book launch event, Future Terra Formations, where Alper Derinboğaz will share insights and anecdotes from his new book, Geospaces (Actar Publishers, 2022) will also feature a panel discussion with Ariane Harrison, Michael Young, and Ferda Kolatan on how buildings can be seen as iterations of nature through spatial intelligence.
Geospaces is an extended visual essay of ideas, images, drawings, and projects that follows the work of Alper Derinbogaz over the past decade, framing an approach based on empathy with the earth. Together with the insightful foreword by curator and architectural critic Luca Molinari, Geospaces features the essay “Selective Permeability in Architecture” by Graham Harman, one of the most influential names in contemporary philosophy.
In his book, Derinbogaz traces relationships between topography, geology, genetics, ecologies, and construction technologies, arguing that a hybrid approach to making will shape our future habitats.
Date: Wed, Feb 15, 2023, 6 pm – 8 pm EST
