Urban Encounters in Aksaray (Istanbul)

The workshop “Urban Encounters” is based on a co-productive understanding and deals with urban heterogeneities. The workshop took place at the 4th meeting of the IAPS network entitled “Istanbul as an Endless Place of Urban Articulation”, which was organised by the Özyeğin Faculty of Architecture and Design.

The workshop participants were trained in design-orientated methods to deal with complex situations on site and to develop initial practical perspectives.
