Brownbook #67
– the Ankara Issue
€ 29,-

In the strain of a dominantly bleak picture about the Middle East in breaking news headlines, an outlet that reveals different existing aspects in the region is very welcome. Brownbook does exactly that. Published since ten years, this magazine has covered the urban life and culture of many cities in the Middle East and North Africa in three segments: interviews, architecture and cities. With this issue we go to Ankara to trace Turkey’s cinematic legacy, hear about the story of a Turkish couple’s love affair with Arabic literature, walk through the departments of the Middle East Technical University (METU) campus -Turkey’s first expression of brutalist architecture-, and explore the residential neighborhood of Kavaklıdere, which was a hub for the city’s urban development.
