Neyran Turan's Nemestudio at the Pratt Institute

Work from NEMESTUDIO, the architecture office of BCNM professor Neyran Turan, is on exhibit until February 7 at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery in their exhibit "Ambiguous Territory: Architecture, Landscape and the Post-natural."

NEMESTUDIO, run by Turan and her partner Mete Sonmez, made a name for themselves through commissions like the 2014 LV House, a low-income housing initiative in which they improved upon the classic "shotgun" home. Nemestudio has been in the Bay Area since 2016, and continues to address the juxtaposition of major environmental issues with architectural materiality. Turan was a 2017 recipient of the BCNM Seed Grant Fellowship.

From the website:

The exhibition assembles over forty contemporary architects, artists, and landscape architects whose work challenges the division between the built and the natural environment.

Ambiguous Territory asks, can art and design avail new ways to approach contemporary challenges regarding the environment?
