YAPI Magazine: Filiz Cingi Yurdakul explained the precautions against the destructions due to the earthquake
Architect Filiz Cingi Yurdakul, who has been involved in many award-winning projects in the fields of architecture, urban design, and interior design at AURA Design Studio, emphasizes that, due to our country’s geographical location, it is possible to take measures against the damage that earthquakes can cause, even if earthquakes cannot be prevented.
According to Filiz Cingi Yurdakul, if a building has not experienced an earthquake, there are various steps to follow. One of the most important is compliance with the approved building permit project: “Buildings should be constructed in accordance with the approved architectural and structural project, and this project should be adhered to afterward. Adding unauthorized floors, building elevators, or implementing practices not included in the project, such as column damage during renovations, irreparably damages the structural integrity of the building.” If there is damage to the building, seeking professional assistance becomes a necessity.
