Nevzat Sayin 421  

Architect, Turkey
Nevzat Sayın was born in 1954 in Hatay where his father, a civil servant, was appointed at that time. After living in Gaziantep, Ankara, Istanbul, and Bodrum, he graduated in 1974 from Atatürk High School in Izmir and in 1978 from Ege University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Architecture, again in Izmir. Between 1978-1980 he continued with graduate studies at the same school but did not complete them. The entire journey of living in Izmir would enable him to fully embrace and internalize the “Aegean Culture” which inspired the manifests in his talks, texts, and works

Between 1980-1984 Sayın returned to Istanbul for what he defines as “post-academic training” and worked with Cengiz Bektaş. Between 1984-1986 he suspended architectural work and went on ‘trips to increase his knowledge,’ focusing on the Aegean Region and antiquity, and took photographs. Until 1990 he continued to practice architecture, working with different offices.

The works he produced between 1990-2004 were gathered in the book “Düşler Düşünceler İşler” (Dreams, Thoughts, Works) prepared by Tansel Korkmaz. Sayın was nominated for and has received architectural awards both in Turkey and abroad. In addition to his work at NSMH, he continues to teach in diverse architectural schools in Turkey; he is a founding member of and studio instructor in the MArch Program in Architectural Design at Bilgi University. In 2015, “A Book About A Building” was published by Umur Press which includes Umur Print House’s design and construction procedure.

Summer schools, conferences, juries, and workshops for architecture students constitute an important part of his involvement in architectural education. His works also include texts, interviews, exhibitions, and publications on architecture.

 

TR: Nevzat Sayın 1954 yılında Hatay Dörtyol'da doğdu. Mimarlık eğitimini 1974-1978 yılları arasında Ege Üniversitesi Mimarlık Bölümü'nde yaptı. NSMH, Nevzat Sayın tarafından 1986'da mimarlık hızmetleri verme amacıyla Istanbul Kuzguncuk’ta kuruldu. 1992 yılında yeniden yapılanarak, katılımcı bir yönetim ve yürütme anlayışına sahip oldu. Bu katilimci anlayış, ofis içi düzeninde olduğu kadar diğer mimari grup ve disiplinlerden olan ekiplerle de verimli bir çalışma ortamının zeminini oluşturmaktadır. Çekirdek kadrosu 14 mimar olmakla beraber esnek organizasyon yapısı sayesinde eş zamanlı olarak farklı ölçek ve konularda mimarlık hızmeti verebilen bir yapıya sahiptir. Bu vizyon ile bu güne kadar irili ufakli 270 proje konusu titizlikle ele alınmış olup, 3.000.000 m² kapalı alan ve 12.000.000 m² açık alan projelendirilmiştir.
