The melting pot of east and west, the great city of Istanbul, has been coveted through the ages and was the capital of two glorious empires: the Byzantine and Ottoman. 8,000 years of human occupation at this site has left behind a massive accumulation of architectural legacy for later researchers to discover and analyze.
Join us in Istanbul for a month of comprehensive analysis with lectures from leading experts in the field. Explore the coping mechanisms developed through the millennia to different sets of problems by the builders and dwellers of this magnificent city!
This summer research program is specially designed for undergraduate and graduate students of Architecture, Urban Planning and other related fields. The four-week intensive coursework of lectures, on-site visits and studios will provide a valuable opportunity to learn directly from our distinguished researchers and cultivate your expertise.
The program will take place in Istanbul between July 16 and August 10. During this time participants will have an opportunity to collaborate and be exposed to diverse set of perspectives while initiating new friendships and connections.
We sincerely hope you will join us this summer at AURA-Istanbul and look forward to receiving your application.
