I am Ece, an Istanbul-based architect and designer. I graduated from the IZTECH Architecture Department in 2015 and completed the Architectural Design Computing Graduate Program at ITU. 

During my graduate studies, I focused on computational thinking, knowledge-based design, design cognition, computational design methods —especially fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, and evolutionary algorithms. I wrote my thesis entitled "Understanding Shape Preferences in Architectural Design through Evolutionary Computation" under the supervision of Michael S. Bittermann. The thesis aims to devise a computational method to understand the individual’s aesthetic preference of architectural forms. This individual can be either the user or the designer himself/herself.
