Şeyma Çimen from Turkey
I finished my bachelor’s degree at the Bahçeşehir University in 2019 and have worked as a freelancer since. During my architectural education, I attended ICSA (Inter-cultural Study of Architecture) program at the Mukogawa Women’s University in Japan, in 2018.
In my professional life, I’m interested in all aspects of design, from objects to buildings. Lately I’m more focused on flexibility, adaptability, and modularity that can easily adapt to rapidly changing conditions
Architecture is a process of exploration for me. While being inspired by fields such as art, history, philosophy, sociology, and culture, architecture continues to contribute to these fields.
Competitions are a different way of learning and exploring architecture. What I learn from my own project and from other projects can be my biggest motivation when not only the process, but also the results are released.
In addition to our professional or academic life as a designer, competitions allow us to improve ourselves, recognize problems in different subjects and places, produce problems, and seek answers to them. We can discover new things at the end of the day.
Design a structure that would function as a source of education on past events or a method of raising awareness of ongoing injustices
