Avcioglu's presentation will review his approach at GAD and research his GAD Foundation in line with the rapid changes occurring in our cities today. The task in architecture has come to a point where data and analysis of urban environments has become a critical step in the design and development of new forms and structures. 

Using examples from the architecture of GAD, he will focus on the impact of 21st century technology and knowledge in architecture with implications for the ecology of cities and their evolution.
