About 

Burak is a Los Angeles-based Architectural Designer. 

After receiving his B.Arch Degree from Bilkent University with honors degree, he was honoured to receive Fulbright Scholarship for Masters Degree on Computational Design. He worked for prestigious architecture firms including Studio Libeskind in New York, Oyler Wu Collaborative in Los Angeles and Melike Altinisik Architects in Istanbul. Burak now pursues M.Arch II degree at Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles. 

With a master’s degree, he desires to gain experience in academic research, cross-cultural interaction and competence, and it would open up new horizons for his career and for him to realize ambitious future plans. For Burak, architecture is a strong tool requiring a multidisciplinary approach and thinking that can transform the world into a peaceful home. His experience with computational tools taught him that the intelligence of algorithms and parameters provides many opportunities and convenience to designers in the design phases with many constraints.
