Sponge Suit that has the unique ability to clean the ocean by absorbing harmful oil-based contaminants as you swim will be prominently featured in the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles Swimsuit Calendar, which went on sale this week.
The Sponge Suit designed by Eray/Carbajo with technology engineered by Sponge, Inc.,will be prominently featured in the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles Swimsuit Calendar, which went on sale today. The prototype was created using the super-hydrophobic carbon based “sponge” material fitted into a cutting-edge 3D printed form.
Wearing the Sponge Suit on the cover of 2018 calendar is Snow Feng, a four-year veteran of the squad. Snow is a physician assistant who earned a B.S. degree in biochemistry from the University of California at San Diego and an M.S. degree in physician assistant studies from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Sustainable Development via Architectural Innovation
Eray Carbajo announces Urban Rural, a new dwelling typology for a sustainable transformation strategy that will become exemplar for Istanbul’s future redevelopment, with construction completion in 2019.
Urban Rural proposes a hybrid unit of habitation where one can be close to the city center and simultaneously enjoy the lifestyle of rural living, while having strong interaction with the community and neighborhood.
The design challenges the status quo of typical residential typology. Urban Rural seeks sustainable development through architectural innovation. The unique form of the residential modules utilizes an efficient hexagonal grid that covers the maximum building volume with minimum number of building elements.
One hexagon unit consists a polygonal area to inhabit and a triangular cavity to be used as an irrigable garden. When all modules combined, these triangle cavities act as a truss structure transferring the building’s loads to lower members. As a whole, Urban Rural creates interdependencies between building systems, structure, landscape and architecture. Integration of such complex systems are achieved through modular design that persevere flexibility.
Urban Rural aims to minimize the building’s ecological footprint and to maximize the positive impact on the environment, while considering the economic viability of the project. In order to achieve this, component based modular design and locally sourced building materials together is the key.
Urban Rural is designed to become a city landmark. Building a vertical urban village in the heart of the city center, immediately reduces the dependency to cars and even to public transit, and it naturally promotes walking or cycling. This generates more opportunities for human interaction and moments of communication that will eventually result in a stronger community. Urban Rural features social and recreational spaces on the lower floors to build a self-sufficient neighborhood where people could live, work and recreate locally.

Eray Carbajo receives honorable mention in national architecture competition to design the transportation and interconnection hub of Izmir, Turkey. The avant-garde design proposal redefines the ground level and creates a new topography through its multi layered elevated parks, urban plazas and interconnecting green paths.
Having to live, work and circulate in a never-ending mobility; the society revolves around the entity of mobility. Relocation of information, services, people and furniture reforms everyday life.
İzmir, the port city of Turkey isn’t very far from this form of kinesis. Throughout the history, the urban development of the city of İzmir has transformed itself into different entities; the state of relocation, the state of reorientation, a transit city and city of final destination.
Cities can be viewed as organisms with vessel systems, their transportation systems connect two different places to each other. On the other hand, cities of separate segments and disconnected layers wouldn’t be able to serve as sustainable cities. In this regard, the form of urban transportation should consider the needs of public and urban connectivity.
Eray Carbajo’s transportation hub design proposal integrates metro, fast train, tram, bus systems, car park, bicycle roads and pedestrian friendly modes in order to achieve faster urban interconnectivity between populated districts of İzmir. The project investigates the real boundaries of a city and interconnectivity of design. The proposal aims to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoors spaces, and blends in the building structure with the plazas.
The urban design puts into use the inefficient urban gaps by analyzing user experience. The environment-friendly design ensures an integrating web between industrial and residential areas, with a strategy of perpetual motion that creates continuous public flow, starting from the coastal promenade of Izmir with a flow back into the city center. The design blends and merges coastline, urban hubs, intercity connections and industrial districts.
The landscraper is on a path of continuous change within it’s very form. Public parks and plazas aim to serve to all kinds of users; all Izmir urbanites and visitors, as well as, users with disabilities. The interlacing structure responds to the three different levels of elevation, providing opportunities for social-cultural interactions.
Therefore, Izmir Transportation Hub is a living and perpetually changing structure with over/underpasses that allow effortless flow.

Located at Istanbul Technical University’s tech incubator, etiyaLABS Co-innovation Space, designed by Eray/Carbajo, opened to public in July 2016.
With the notion of “innovation through collaboration”, the design of the space aims to maximize the human interaction through flexible meeting points and multi-functional furniture, which were also designed by Eray/Carbajo. The importance to “Human Touch” reflects not only in the layout of the space, but also in the artwork and catch phrases on the walls.
The space’s owner Etiya, Turkey’s leading independent software vendor, has been vocal on creating a culture around innovation, and through etiyaLABS they are encouraging this within. etiyaLABS will be the center for their “calls for innovation”
