Agora is an attempt to make a comparative analysis of a group of public squares in İstanbul.

The work investigates how squares -the most significant public spaces in the city- have emerged and transformed over time, how they are currently used and how city dwellers express themselves through them. Each photograph in the series is taken from an elevated vantage point of about twenty meters high, aiming to explore the relationship between the built environment and its users without a hierarchical order.

Agora was first shown at the Venice Biennale 14th International Architecture Exhibition, Pavilion of Turkey in 2014.

Each exhibited print size was 185 x 150 cm.

This book was produced during the workshop conducted by Matthieu Charon and Remi Faucheu, as part of the photo book project of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in 2016
