About me
I am an architectural designer, scholar and co-founder of the Ambiguous Standards Institute (an internationally acclaimed design-research project). I am currently teaching at Istanbul Bilgi University and pursuing a PhD at Istanbul Technical University. My research interests include daily life studies, open design practices, design standards, and architectural debates on regulating principles. Holdin a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture from Istanbul Technical University, I have worked as a full time architect for 2 years upon graduating. I am a full time lecturer for 9 years in the department of architecture in Istanbul Bilgi University. A participant in multiple exhibitions for the IKSV Istanbul Design Biennial, I also served as an associate curator of the Vardiya project, representing the Pavilion of Turkey in the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. I am co-author of the book Daily Life Studies Publication No. 1 (2016) and co-editor of The Shift (2018). My most recent work, the Ambiguous Standards Institute is now on display at The Art Institute of Chicago. I am moving to London this summer, and will be very much looking for collaborations and friendships! https://www.artic.edu/authors/46/cansu-curgen cansucurgen@gmail.com cansu.curgen@bilgi.edu.tr ig: @curgen
