Floor 1, Workshop IV

An academic and an interior designer whose practice mainly focuses on the reuse of existing buildings, Graeme Brooker will explore the idea of heritage as the set of elements found on a site, to be analyzed, understood and reworked for new uses. Using his students’ work and his own, he will illustrate numerous strategies by which radical heritages can be adapted for something they were never intended for.

Programmed in collaboration with Istanbul Bilgi University’s Department of Interior Design, this public talk will be held in English.
