Alexis Sanal and her husband Murat Sanal are co-founders of Sanal Architecture which is based in Istanbul, Turkey. Together they have a firm where collaboration is an essential part of their work process.
On the 9th of December 2011 we met with Alexis for a conversation on the topic of community and as it turns out she as got many interesting ideas on that very topic.
Throughout her work as an architect Alexis focuses heavily on collaboration and community. She believes that she has a responsibility to the people she works with and that her key roll when working within a community is to transfer the knowledge down, collect it and raise the knowledge capital of that community.
