Second-year grad student Dincer Savaskan has won an Honorable Mention ($3,000 prize) in the "YTONG Roofs and Sustainability Competition" organized by Ytong and the Chamber of Architects, Istanbul, Turkey. Savaskan's project was one of 68 projects submitted. The competition was about re-purposing a building in the city and exploring an innovative way to renovate the existing roof. Savaskan adapted Pot in Pot (Zeer Pot) technology into the roofs for his project, and recommended a food bank for the use of his building. The work of several important architectural offices in Turkey were among the award winners for the competition. Competition projects are going to be on display at UIA 2011 in Tokyo, at the 24th World Congress of Architecture.
