Yalın Mimarlık ekibi olarak, içinde bulunduğumuz coğrafyada , bu zamana ve yere ilişkin bir mimarlık üretmeye çalışıyoruz. Bu üretim farklı ölçeklerde ve konularda mimari problemlere kendi bakış açımızdan, durduğumuz yerden geliştirdiğimiz çözümleri içeriyor.

Bu anlamda tasarım problemine kendi özgün çerçevesini iyi kavramaya, yapılacak olan mimarlığın ve mekanların da bu kavrayışın bir parçası olmasına gayret ediyoruz.
Mimarlığı kağıt üzerinde iyi görünen bir tasarım aracı olarak değil, yerle, bastığı bulunduğu kültürel ve sosyal çevre, geçmiş ve gelecekle, inşa etme refleksleri ile bağlayıcı bir mekânsal düzenleme aracı olarak görüyoruz. Bu anlamda üretim tekniklerini, işçiyi, işçiliği, mimarlığın yapma inşa etme ile ilgili ayrılmaz bölümünü tasarım ile bağlamaya çalışıyoruz. Bu izlemeye çalıştığımız yol ile tasarımın şantiyede kısmen devam ettiği, inşaatında ofiste masada hep yer aldığı bir ara durumu kovalıyoruz.

Bunlarla beraber, hep yeniden icad edilen histerik bir şekilde yeniyi kovalayan bir üretim bakışı yerine bazen baştan ‘demode’ olabilecek yöntem ve tasarlama metotları ile yapılar kurguluyoruz. Belki yeniyi kovalarken sürekli aynı şeyleri yapmaya başladığımız mimarlık dünyasına bir tepki bu.
Yapı üretmenin yanında içinden geçtiğimiz süreçte tam bu zamanda olup bitene, hayata, politikaya, işveren ilişkilerine, yapı yapma alışkanlıklarımıza, kentleşme reflekslerimize ve mimarlığın konusu gibi görünmeyen başka konulara da olabildiğince uzaktan bakarak tasarım probleminin bir parçası haline getirmeye ve görünür kılmaya çalışıyoruz.
