Focusing on six recent projects, including House 2B, that recently won the prestigious Aga Khan Award for Architecture, this publication presents the architecture of renowned Turkish architect Han Tümertekin to the English-speaking world. The book examines in detail his ability to engage in some of the more difficult issues confronting architects throughout the world today, such as suburban tract development, landscape and environment, and the challenges of practicing in different countries throughout the world.

The book includes an introductory essay by Hashim Sarkis, an article by Tümertekin on his design approach, and written and graphic explanations of Tümertekin’s projects. It is the first of a new series of occasional monographs on contemporary designers in the Middle East and Muslim world.
