AURA Summer Academy “Istanbul: Past, Present, Future”

The Istanbul Architecture and Urbanism Research Academy (AURA-Istanbul) invites students and young professionals to join its inspiring summer program, Istanbul: Past, Present, and Future. The deadline for enrolment is June 1, 2019.

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 have left behind a massive accumulation of architectural legacy for later researchers to discover and analyze. With a wide range of lecturers who are leading experts in their field, the program will cover a comprehensive analysis featuring mechanisms developed through the millennia to different sets of problems by the builders and inhabitants of the city.

This summer research program is specially designed for undergraduate / graduate students and young professionals of Architecture, Urban Planning and other related fields. The four-week intensive coursework of lectures, on-site visits and studios will provide participants a valuable opportunity to learn directly from distinguished researchers and cultivate their expertise.

The program will take place in Istanbul between July 8 and August 2, 2019. During the program, participants will have an opportunity to share innovative ideas and diverse perspectives while initiating new friendships and connections.
