Alper Aytaç founded Aytaç Architects, architecture and research practice, in 2005 to develop an architecture that would transgress the normal bounds of traditional forms and materials and produce unexpected intensities with other objects/spaces/buildings. The office operates like a laboratory with the aim to render space and building more mobile, dynamic, active than they have previously been understood as stasis and sedentary. The office strives to create powerful and clear design solutions individual to each project and site. As a full service office, Aytaç Architects is engaged with building design, urban design, interiors and landscape design at all scales. The certain interests of the office are mostly non-architectural. The study of natural landscape formations such as river deltas, oceans, deserts, ice-flows, rock formations, forests, canyons, affect our work in a way that explores new types of architectural space to challenge and move beyond codifications in various levels. The characteristics of this type of space in distinction to traditional resist compartmentalization. This territorial subtlety and ambiguity is also best seen in the city of İstanbul where the office is located. It is the only city in the world that connects/disconnects two continents. Alper Aytaç received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree from the Ohio State University in 1999. He worked at NBBJ and Eisenman Architects as a project assistant. In 2003, he received his Master of Architecture from the Southern Californian Institute of Architecture (SCI - Arc). Aytac Architects buildings and projects are published extensively in prominent architectural and lifestyle publications nationwide and worldwide.
