The complete volume on the buildings and urban projects by Istanbul-based firm Emre Arolat Architects (EAA), the Turkish firm that won the 2010 Aga Khan Award for Architecture. Emre Arolat Architects is a compilation of extraordinary and innovative projects by this award-winning architecture firm, founded in 2004 by Emre Arolat and Gonca Paolar. The scope of EAA’s projects is all-encompassing, from luxury hotels to factories. EAA’s roots are in modernism’s honesty of structure, expression, and materials, yet they are undeniably influenced by Turkish vernacular. The book highlights thirty-four projects across Turkey, including the Istanbul Museum of Contemporary Art, Antakya Museum Hotel, Cukurova Regional Airport, Yalikavak Palmarina, Sancaklar Mosque, and Le Meridien Istanbul Etiler.
