Any architects knowledgeable about Istanbul?
I am a journalist working for bne Intellinews ( Protected content ) and was commissioned a story about architecture in Istanbul. I am at the very early stages of my research, and am looking for a hook for the story which could consist of a major project that is being constructed, important restoration works on historical sites, or something along those lines. I am mainly interested in residential and industrial architecture, and would prefer to stay away from developments like the new airport or malls/ commercial buildings. Any architects out there willing to impart their knowledge? I would appreciate an overview of recent developments and trends in architecture, and will duly quote you/ give credit for images and ideas/ research. PM if you know someone or are an architect yourself.
