Duo-, consisting of dilemmas in Büyükada; combines all the differences as the local and foreing, public and private, Greek and Turkish, sea and land, the crowd of the summer and the solitude of the winter, distance and proximity from Istanbul, natural and artifical, improvisational and intervention, and holds together in an aesthetic body which located in the intersection of dilemmas.
It protects these dilemmas which continue from the history to the present date by using the tightly hugging of improvisation/light looking wooden structure and the artifical/perfect concrete circle.
“Being isolated” term which is specific for Büyükada that is used as place of exile in the historical period, is occurs by the feeling of being inside and outside as a result of entering into the circle to get informations from the video screen.
Duo- is neither open | nor closed.

Duo- is as new as concrete and as old as wood.

  1. Duo by Atıl Aggündüz suggests a powerful vision via duality for Büyükada case that develops a context in a larger scale. However, the promised dualities could be developed in a more surprising way by bringing the discussion to the extremes in terms of material, location and the architectural quest.
