Superpool prefers observing the scenery instead of being inside it. Rather than being inside Istanbul, within the city’s thousands of years of experience, Superpool steps back in order to see it, to remember and identify its genuine solutions and re-introduces them to life. Research is integral to its work-approach. An architecture office, Superpool pays particular attention to understanding the urban contexts that architecture is located in, as well as the construction processes that shape buildings.Superpool was founded in 2006 by Selva Gürdogan and Gregers Tang Thomsen. Since 2013, the two are also directing Studio-X Istanbul, an urban laboratory of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
