Text description provided by the architects. Buyaka was designed without using a themeatic overlay. The design approach portrays an honest  intent to do with its program as a mixed use building. It attempt to reflect a sense of integrity with its formal language, emphasising that good design doesn’t need thematic overlays.

In architecture, meaning and content has been transposed. We are living in an era where the authentic has lost its importance and has been overruled by the superficial and fake realities have become the norm. Fake, theatrical fascades are applied to buildings  without  a relationship with function and program. Materials mimmic other materials with the excuse of cost effectiveness, creating a potpuri of postmodern clutter. What does the building say? Who is the user? İs an open question.

This potpuri of  formal clutter has ovvertaken the fundamental role of architecture and architecture has become more of a pictorial race of artisans where origin and authentic notions have disentegrated  Trying to design puposeless projects for developpers without identified users have become a big challenge for architects.
