The work of architect and artist Buşra Tunç focuses on perception and experience in space. Her interdisciplinary approach creates ambient atmospheres, which need to get experienced to unfold their aesthetic narratives. Tunç designs spatial experiences, which appear like realms of light, where frequency, intensity and colour temperature fuse with auditory patterns. The composed soundscapes assemble noise, sonic acts and human voice.

The body of her architecture is build through a modified reuse of industrial materials to question their normative contexts and functions which determine our everyday life. Her engineered physical structures breathe the old heritage of vast megalopolises and forgotten factory sites, creating a tension between the inside and outside to provide gateways into other spheres. The experienced realities take the audience through levels of intimacy and creative thrill by stimulating visionary imaginations.
