The Faculty of Architecture warmly congratulates Ahmet Toglukdemir on winning first prize at the ICOMOS student competition. ICOMOS is committed to the preservation of monuments, ensembles and cultural landscapes on a national and international level. The theme of this year's student competition, which has been taking place since 2015, was "1960+ / Pleas for the preservation of postmodern buildings", thus focussing on the undogmatic creations of postmodernism. The aim of the task was to take an in-depth look at the architectural and urban planning heritage of postmodernism.

Ahmet Toglukdemir was awarded first prize for his work on the "documenta urbana". This work deals with the social housing estate project "documenta urbana" in Kassel; its significance, changes and the idea of this estate as part of postmodern architecture.
