“Architecture is very important for us and architects are our most important partners. We want to act in unison with architecture community in Turkey and around the world. We started these programs with RIBA to continue giving support to architectural culture in Turkey and in the other markets that we actively work with. We thought this kind of organisation will be really helpful for the architecture community of Turkey to be a part of more international platforms and for them to benefit more from the opportunities.” | VitrA

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.

It is great for us that RIBA is doing a presentation for that purpose.” | LOT Studio | İstanbul
