Selva Gurdogan and Gregers Tang Thomsen lead SUPERPOOL, an Istanbul-based international design practice operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research and development. Superpool has recently finalized 2 projects for the art institution SALT; the Becoming Istanbul Exhibition at SALT Beyoglu and their offices in the newly renovated Ottoman Bank Building in Galata. Underway and soon to finish is the ZK01 House in Zekeriyakoy, north of Istanbul. Since August 2009, Superpool has been one of 14 partners in the EU-funded FP7 research project "TailorCrete". The aim of the 4-year research is to reach break-through advancement in the concrete building industry through introduction of robots. The project received €5.9 million in funding. Most recently Superpool has received the Audi Urban Future Award 2012 to study mobility in Istanbul in 2030. The study will be concluded with an exhibition in Istanbul in October 2012 along with the 5 other cities in the program.
