Bir Ev is a roof structure that produces socially based projects. The first product is the Yeldeğirmeni project at the Kadikoy district of Istanbul, where I live at the same time.

After a long period of time, I can convey the project that I have spent my life with in short: When we all see a house, we stop and think about something in the house. We imagine the streets we are surrounded, the old residents of the apartments we sit in, and think about them. Or it is our own life, we are surrounded and we think that there are places, places to be depicted. Actually, I’m doing exactly that. I’m dreaming, I’m drawing. I tell you everything that the city has imagined for me. I am doing studies where the city and people are intertwined. I choose beautiful buildings, clean streets, eye-catching beauties, streets and buildings that I can catch snapshots.

When I witnessed the windmill neighborhood’s resistance to capitalism and modern time, I blended the old and new inhabitants and took out this project.
