Young Architects Selection & Exhibition aims to record individual and collective production of young architects and present it through the national and international platforms. It also intends to become a new platform for contemporary architectural thought. Planned to be organized every year in the same period, GEMSS’s intention is to provide a multidisciplinary environment for creative projects of young Turkish architects. GEMMS will also build an archive of architectural practices by tracing and recording the concepts and ideas in the selected works. In this way GEMSS aims to become one of the major events that serve to promote the architectural culture in Turkey. GEMSS will also host parallel panels and talks. The accumulation of ideas and concepts gained through the process will be shared through online publications and through a book of the selected projects.
The first edition of GEMSS will be curated by Sait Ali Köknar, whereas the jury consists of professional architects as well as artists, academicians and business representatives from the sector. The jury for GEMSS 2019 consists of Antonio Cosentino (Painter), Cem Sorguç (CM Architecture, Co-Founder), Dürrin Süer (M+D Architecture, Co-Founder), Hüseyin Kahvecioğlu, (Ass. Prof. Dr., İTÜ, The Department of Architecture), Murat Tabanlıoğlu (Tabanlıoğlu Architects, Co-Owner), Serdar Güçar (Hill International Vice President) and Zuhal Ulusoy (Prof. Dr., İstanbul Bilgi University, The Dean of The Faculty of Architecture).
GEMSS exhibition will take place in The Circle between 5 September - 12 October 2019. Later, between 1 - 30 June 2020 it will be shown in RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) as part of London Festival of Architecture.
