Hello world, my name is Adem Altunkaya but I prefer Adam. I’m from Manchester but as you can tell from my name Its not English, that’s because I’m half Turkish. I have a good mix of both cultures; I’ve spent most of my summers in the Southwestern part of Turkey staying with family. This is my fourth year spent blissfully studying in Newcastle.

In my undergrad I was part of the first graduating year for a whole new course called Architecture & Urban Planning. The course was primarily based on alternative approaches towards traditional planning and architecture. This was where I became fascinated urban design, as many of the design modules had elements of; community participation, urban regeneration and urban prototyping.

I’m currently studying a MA in Urban Design and wish to pursue a career within in this field. Although I haven’t found my focus, my main interest would in urban regeneration in both housing and public space. My hobbies and interests out of university include; supporting my football club Manchester United, urban photography, gaming, playing pool and I occasionally dabble in a little table tennis.
