Internship – 2017
Erginoglu & Calislar Architects

Erginoglu & Calislar Architects is based in Istanbul, Turkey and was founded in 1993 by Hasan Calislar and Kerem Erginoglu. The firm specializes in urban planning, architecture, and interior design projects and provides assistance for planning applications. In addition to architecture and design services, the principals of the firm also give lectures and organize architectural workshops in universities across Turkey.

I was accepted for an internship with the firm in 2017, which was an incredible learning experience. I learned how to work collaboratively and adaptively within a demanding and fast-paced environment and utilize my ingenuity and creativity to a great extent.

During the internship, I designed lighting fixtures for the new headquarters of a prominent tech firm, which were produced and used for the final design. I was asked to design a physically linear structure that, through certain viewpoints, seemingly appeared spherical. I used circular patterns as texture and mathematically calculated and drew each individual circle so that they would appear as if they were on a sphere. I then transferred my calculations to computer software and did the final digital modeling and technical drawings.
