“PNR.istanbul gives Turkish architects opportunity to expand their work abroad, has an important mission of bringing together architecture offices around the world with producers from Turkey and fills in an important gap in these difficult times for construction industry. We are really thankful to PNR.istanbul for bringing us together with many architecture offices around the world by Face-to-Face events because it is a great way to introduce ourselves. We wanted to give architects from Turkey information about what path to follow if they want to work globally and if they want to do this through RIBA, how they can make it happen. RIBA-VitrA Architectural Concersations was a catalyzer for this. We extended this relationship today to the 7th floor of VitrA’s Nisantaşı venue, VBenzeri Mekan with PNR.istanbul and we are very happy about that.” | VitrA

“Our relationship with materials is provided by brands. As architects, with the invitation from the brands or by hosting them in our offices, we learn about so many different products and details, so we can serve our customers on a more developed scale. In this sense, I find the PNR.istanbul events very useful for providing relationship between architects and products. Making face to face contact is very important and specially in the first event we got the chance to sit on the same table with more than 20 brands and they got the chance to introduce themselves. Even when I came here now for Focus II, I see familiar faces from the previous events and maybe they will come to my office or I will be interested in some of their products.
I am here today for learning about what kind of works are being done in the world and what kind of processes they go through. Because there is always a thought of doing projects abroad. We always think about what is happening in our own country. This event is a great chance to see what is going on in the world. It is great for us that RIBA is doing a presentation for that purpose.” | LOT Studio | İstanbul
