Cem Kayatekin

Cem S. Kayatekin holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Auburn University, a Master of Architecture from Cornell University, and a Ph.D. in Architecture from the University of Oregon, completed under the tutelage of Howard Davis.

His teaching and research interests are focused on:

(1) the topic of urban socioeconomic resilience and inclusivity, specifically within the context of how the physical, the socioeconomic, and the political dynamics of a city operate and overlap;

(2) discourse analysis relating to complex adaptive systems and socioeconomic resilience;

(3) architecture and urbanism as a product caught between the realms of societal politico-economics on the one hand, and the more-localized and at times individualized processes of problem resolution on the other; and

(4) the just city, and the right to the city that it encompasses.

Cem is also the co-founder of DICE group, an architecture, and urbanism firm anchored primarily in Sri Lanka.
