The Young Architects Selection & Exhibition (GEMSS) brings together young Turkish architects who contribute to the culture of architecture and to record and present their innovative work to a wide audience. While providing national and international visibility for young architects The Circle aims to engage these architects in its communication and collaboration platform.
