Book Launch: Geospaces by Alper Derinboğaz at AIA New York Center of Architecture

Salon Alper Derinboğaz founder and principal Alper Derinboğaz will be launching his new book, Geospaces, at AIA New York on Wednesday, February 15, 2023.

The event will host a panel discussion with Derinboğaz, alongside Ferda Kolatan, Michael Young, and Ariane Harrison on how buildings can be seen as iterations of nature rather than artificial objects.

Geospaces, published by Actar Publishers in 2022, is an extended visual essay of ideas, images, drawings and projects that follows the work of Alper Derinboğaz over the past decade, framing an approach based on empathy with the earth. The book underlines that modernity and its break from the vernacular has led to a crisis of connections. To move towards an architecture more in tune with earth. the book suggests thinking in continuities and looking at the emergence of natural forms, the history of human habitation, and the future of fabrication technologies.
