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.”
