About

Trained as an architect, I am a distinguished scholar with Ph.D. in architecture and my problem-centered scientific research projects aim to explore game changing findings in my expertise fields. My current scientific research interests in architecture (history) are public health and climate justice with intersectional perspectives in the social context. My recent advanced academic research project has examined social justice themes in (postwar) architecture (history): With academic sponsorship by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, History, Theory and Criticism of Architecture Program for two years, I am “the first” scholar to uncover career history of pioneering Turkish and Turkish-women architects in multicultural postwar US architecture, and early three women architects from the Princeton University-School of Architecture (Class of 1970, 1971) after my Ph.D. in architecture. Intersectional feminism, intertwined history of architecture, and politics of gender in multicultural postwar US architecture have been my scholarly focal points. (1). I was invited by the MIT-HTC, the MIT-WGS, the MIT-Women League, the MIT-Media in Transition International Conferences (5 & 6), the MIT-WikiConference North America, the Harvard University-GSD, the 53rd Middle East Studies Association-Annual Meeting, the Society of American Archivists-Research Forum (2020), CUNY, Boston University, the Society of Architectural Historians-Annual and International Conferences (2023 and 2018), International Women in Architecture Symposium at Virginia Tech., “Women Who Design”, the AIA-Silicon Valley, Emerson College, etc. as a speaker and a panelist. Following my productive research process at MIT, I am currently developing my book project.

My most recent research project investigates diverse and inclusive historical documentation practice at pioneering schools of architecture in the US, such as at MIT, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, etc., and I moderated an online panel organized by “Women Who Design” on diverse and inclusive historical documentation in architecture with a leading architecture historian and archivists in the field in 2021.

I am an awardee of a fellowship by the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) and very pleased to receive invitation e-mail by the Founding Chair of Historic Interiors Affiliate Group at the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH-HIG) to serve their “first” Research Committee. With the goal of fostering new understandings of the history of interiors, I am also a committee member of HIG SAH (Historic Interiors Affiliate Group of the Society of Architectural Historians) to prepare its article award proposal guidelines for circulation to ad-hoc committee (2022) and have been working on archives and collections on historic interiors with a multidisciplinary perspective and some data of the SAH-Data Report (2021). With my scholarly mission to support and promote inclusive and diverse mindset in architecture (history), I was also a nominator for the Aga Khan Awards for Architecture. As a certificate holder by Consortium for Graduate Studies, Gender, Culture, Women & Sexuality (GCWS) at MIT, I am also a peer reviewer of the PLAN Journal (TPJ) on research, studies and criticism in architecture and urbanism.

As a special Turkish fellow, I began my Ph.D. dissertation research at the Harvard University, Aga Khan History of Art and Architecture, Ph.D. Program, and continued this advanced research at the Columbia University, Graduate School of Planning and Preservation, Ph.D. Program as a research scholar. Based on my dissertation research at Harvard and Columbia universities (in particular with scientific research support by Professor Kenneth Frampton), I completed “the first” Ph.D. dissertation on historical and theoretical analysis of practice conducted by Tekeli-Sisa Architecture (Istanbul, 1954-present) with a specific research problem on design architect – (diverse) large scale client  relationship in the private sector, and obtained my Ph.D. in Architecture at the Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Architecture.

7.Architectural Monographs

Meral Ekincioglu, General Publishing Coordinator.

My  following 19 editorial monographs on pioneering architects are accessible at leading academic libraries in the U.S. architecture, such as at the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library of Columbia University, the Frances Loeb Library of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and the Rotch Library of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Architecture & Planning. My published monograph on Bernard Tschumi is  accessible in Swiss Collections, a gateway to historical and modern collections in Swiss libraries and archives as well. (Bibliographic code: bbg08). Those 19 monographs are “the first” series on pioneering international and national modern and contemporary architects for scholars and readers in Turkish architecture.
