Damla Göre
Curriculum vitae

Damla Göre is a phD candidate at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) at the Chair of Prof. Maarten Delbeke.

She has studied architecture at Middle East Technical University (METU) and obtained her master's degree (MA) from Istanbul Bilgi University, where she also worked as an assistant. Before her phD she has practised in architecture offices in Istanbul and joined several architectural competitions. Her doctoral thesis traces the notion of salon from its decorative to broader social meanings and examines it as a psycho-spatially contested phenomenon in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Ottoman art and architecture. Her research interests lie in the cross sections of domestic architecture, material culture and gender studies in the context of Mediterranean geography.
