Hello! My name is Burak Sancakdar. With a background in architecture and urbanism I have worked professionally in a number of cities, including Istanbul, Lisbon, Venice, Brussels, New York, and my hometown of Datca, Turkey.

After moving to New York, I graduated from Design and Urban Ecologies at Parsons School for Design in May 2018, under the studio of architects, urbanists and activists such as David Harvey, Maya Wiley and Miodrag Mitrasinovic. With a focus on collaborative design strategies as a means of inclusionary urbanism and skillset in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), have given me the ability to capture, visualize, analyze, and interpret data to understand the ecologies, relationships and patterns in the urban realm.

My academic success coupled with my diverse work experience has sharpened my skills in the practice of trans-disciplinary and co-design strategies, I have developed a multifaceted understanding of design and community building within the fields of architecture and urban design.

Please reach out if you have any questions!
