Basar Girit

Founding Partner

Basar leads a team of 25 engineers, builders and craftspeople at SITU’s fabrication facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Blurring the line between engineering and design, Basar is driven by an interest in material experimentation, flexible assemblies and intelligent systems, which have become essential themes of SITU’s work. Basar has taught in the architecture program at Pratt Institute and has lectured on material practice at Storefront for Art and Architecture and The Architectural League of New York. Basar holds a Bachelor of Architecture from The Cooper Union.
