As a child, Fazil Sutcu had always been considered a visionary by his peers. He was the kid in the neighborhood determined to build a “spaceship” tree house for all to enjoy. It is his imagination, progressive ideas and creativity, reinforced by his effortless ability to visually translate his ideas on paper, that naturally led him into the field of architecture.
Fazil brings innovative ideas, passion and unbridled enthusiasm to his 20 plus years of experience designing venues that entertain and immerse guests.
His expertise includes master planning and designing for attractions such as theme parks, rides, visitor centers, museums, zoos, botanical gardens, themed hospitality and retail settings and other commercial attractions and enterprises.
Fazil was instrumental in designing many attractions/rides/exhibits for Sea World / Discovery Cove of Florida; Sea World of California; Busch Gardens of Tampa, Florida; Busch Gardens of Williamsburg, Virgina; Port Aventura in Salou, Spain; Partecsa Parquales (Expo ’92) in Seville, Spain; and The Bakewell Ottoman Garden at Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis. Most recently Fazil has been designing water parks and interactive parks for international clients.
Fazil continues to design themed environments for all to enjoy.
Fazil earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from METU – Middle East Technical University’s School of Architecture/Department of Architecture, a five year internationally accredited program in Ankara, Turkey.
