Welcome, everyone. After some brief remarks recognizing the esteemed guests and celebrating the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Department of Architecture at IEU by our dean, Prof. Dr. Ender Yazgan Bulgun, Department Head, Asst. Prof. Dr. Bahar Durmaz Drinkwater outlined the general aims of the symposium series and the departmental aims.
Of course, there are many thanks to be given and shared.
Guzden Hoca is giving the brief history of the Trans_Arch_Edu series, which began in 2015 with a group of experienced educators as well as innovators in education.
Each panel has been associated with a workshop.
Guzden Hoca is now quoting from the challenge statement issued by Nilufer Kozikoglu:
“Students teaching students as in the Ecole des Beaux Arts, atelier and making-based learning as in the Bauhaus, learning from practice with invited tutors as in the tradition of the AA, we are witnessing architectural education as a “practice” that reinvents itself, its tools and methods.”
We are about to get underway at the third installment of our “Transformations in Architectural Education” Colloquium series. We are so happy to welcome Toni Kotnik, Nimish Biloria, Defne Suguroglu, and Michael Hensel for the event. Nilufer Kozikoglu and Sema Alacam are also with us for the event.
The first session will comprise Mr. Biloria and Mr. Kotnik in a panel moderated by Sema Alacam, beginning at 13:30.
The second session with Mr. Hensel and Ms. Sunguroglu is set to begin at 15:00

There lies great paradox in a world of fast forward change there is no survival without knowledge and yet knowledge yields to uselessness so fast that education, learning, teaching become obscured. If knowledge transfer means tutors teach what they learned as a student or what they learned by research or even perhaps what they learned yesterday, then, more so, how to research and learn together?
More and more students lead workshops and tutorials on software and technologies such as drones and numerically controlled systems. There is much to experience, to try out, to play and to experiment within the horizon of minute techno species, generative software, automated building and shape finding. However it is seems more crucial that the why and why not, the cultur-real-meta knowledge of the new technologies and the impacts thereof become the essence of any seating, any discussion, any seminar in the university.
The conference would like to host voices for learned experiments as well as keen criticism of technology of making, and notes on strategies of adaption for architecture.
Students teaching students as in the Ecole des Beaux Arts, atelier and making-based learning as in the Bauhaus, learning from practice with invited tutors as in the tradition of the AA, we are witnessing architectural education as a “practice” that reinvents itself, its tools and methods.
