“We’re at a time when we need to cope with ever changing economic conditions and quickly come up with solutions to crises. We have set off to generate the motion and motivation that is much needed in our sector by establishing a networking project that removes the borders, takes on the world as one and is grounded on a collaboration of forces, experience and exchange of knowledge. Under the roof of PNR.istanbul, we seek solutions together with experts and stakeholders, as well as forming a dynamic platform of communication and research. Our agenda will adapt to the changing conditions. Our aim is to find new markets in the fastest and most accurate way possible, benefit from the experiences of those in the know, share information for better and true production. By collaborating under PNR.istanbul, I believe we’ll find the most effective solutions to the period of crisis.” | Binat Communication & Consultancy | Istanbul
“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
