Superpool will participate in the Thinking the Edge – Water and Culture event.
Selva Gürdoğan, Architect (born 1979, Turkey. 2003 graduate from Sci-Arc, USA) and Gregers Tang Thomsen, Architect (born 1974, Denmark. 2003 graduate from Aarhus School of Architecture, Denmark) founded Superpool in Istanbul in 2006. They met at Rem Koolhaas’ studio Office for Metropolitan Architecture – OMA- in 2003, where they worked until establishing Superpool.
Currently Superpool is engaged in TailorCrete, a European Commission funded research for incorporating robotics into concrete construction technology, along with the design of single-family houses in Zekeriyakoy, Istanbul. Superpool has also recently completed Mapping Istanbul; a book commissioned by Garanti Gallery with nearly a hundred maps and information graphics creating a valuable resource for architects, planners, and policy-makers invested in the city’s future.
Most recent Superpool has been participating in the Audi Urban Future Award 2012 to research mobility in Istanbul in 2030.
