Committed to finding creative ways to address social problems, Architecture for All initiates design and architecture projects in communities throughout Turkey. The organization has hosted planning workshops, temporary events, and design-build projects that aim to improve the social, environmental, and economic conditions of the built environment. Its projects are facilitated by multidisciplinary teams equipped to respond to complex public needs. One of its earliest projects aimed to create tools and prototypes for retrofitting thousands of vacant schools in rural Turkey that were abandoned due to changes in the educational system. Since 2011 members and volunteers have facilitated participatory workshops focusing on renovation of the school buildings as well as ideas about rural life and economic opportunity. The organization’s work has been exhibited and collected internationally, including at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Venice Biennale of Architecture; the Art Institute of Chicago; MAXXI, Rome; and the Istanbul Design Biennial.

Established 2011, Istanbul, Turkey
