Nazli studied architecture at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and completed her graduate diploma at the Architectural Association in 2011. At the AA she pursued her interest in film and architecture by focusing on interactive design and the notion of the city as a stage.

Having worked in cities such as New York, Berlin and Istanbul Nazli has developed a keen interest in urban regeneration. At dRMM Nazli has worked on Harper Square and Phase 1 of the Elephant and Castle Regeneration, gaining expertise in spatial organisation and residential design standards. Currently, Nazli is a member of the team designing dRMM’s residential project at Battersea Power Station, which leads her back to ‘architectural staging’.
