Seminer + Atölye, Kampüs dışı etkinlik,  Salt Galata evsahipliğinde
“This work shop focuses on the configuration of the language production in architectural drawings through the mechanisms of poetry. The study proposes this mechanism as a search space constructed through associative intertextuality, intervening the logic of the plot thus generating an unfinished, evolving structure. “

Elif Kendir, Aslıhan Demirtaş, Şebnem Yalınay Çinici,  Mayıs 2019,  “Small Conversations on Drawing”
Seminer ve panel, Kampüs dışı etkinlik, Versus Art Project evsahipliğinde,
            Elif Kendir, “Drawing In-Situ: Emergent Perception through Live-Action Tracing”
             “This talk will focus on the relevance of drawing in-situ as an active observational method. Examples will range from architectural site               drawings to storyboarding for comics and animations to measured drawings for botanical illustrations.”
              Aslıhan Demirtaş, “Remains Connected” 
              “At Ani, a bridge once connected the two banks of the Akhurian/Arpacay River. Today, of the now collapsed bridge, only the abutments on the   two sides of the river remain, one in Turkey and the other in Armenia. As the remains of the bridge exist in two territories, Ani exists in two worlds, at once an important historic Armenian capital and an archeological ruin in a military zone in Turkey at the border with Armenia. Two architects are seduced by the collapsed bridge. Their project consists of a series of visual, graphic and tectonic ‘conversations’ set up to investigate and interpret the multiple existences of Ani, the river and its disconnected bridge. They start by revealing the lenticular existence of the place and develop by  interweaving the resulting existences, references and projections. New York based architects/designers Silva Ajemian and Aslihan Demirtas work to reveal two stories, two forecasts. As they bridge from their respective approaches, they seek to interleave insights and articulate nested architectural and geographic narratives to create illusions of simultaneity and unfold possible realities.”
              Şebnem Yalınay Çinici, “Design, Representation, Reality”            
              “Design ideas develop and flourish in the environments of representation. Though the environments offered by representational technologies are the seed bed for architectural ideation, the word representation implies a subordination to a further origin or reality. However, in this talk, the
indispensability of representation of a thing to develop an understanding  of the thing itself will be discussed, through a questioning of what lines
as architecture are.”

Ali Paşaoğlu, Bora ÖzkuşKasım 2019, “Myriorama Variations on a Theme”
Seminer + Atölye, Kampüs dışı etkinlik, Ercüment Kalmık Müzesi ev sahipliğinde,
“Re-deal the cards and carry on with the story... Myriorama is a word derived from "a myriad of views", a 19th century invention for amusement and contemplation, a series of cards that can be arranged into endless landscapes. The workshop will explore potentials of this medium in architectural drawing and storytelling. Ercüment Kalmık Museum will be our hunting ground for architectural context and features. Our imaginative landscape and our characters will be rendered with architectural drawing techniques and translated into myriorama cards. Re-appearing characters and settings will form a background for endlessly reproducible collective stories.”

Marc Leschelier Kasım 2019, “Lecture from the Mixer”
Seminer, Kampüs dışı etkinlik, Versus Art Project evsahipliğinde,
The lecture will focus on the work of the French architect, Marc Leschelier, and on the attempt to build a more instinctive, direct and brutal architectural language, in which the territories of the useful and the useless, architecture and sculpture merge. These constructions, undetermined and potential, reflect, in their autonomy, the violence of their constructive process. Lecture from the mixer is a lecture that will use the concrete mixer as a starting point and a metaphor for the synthesis and the correspondence between disciplines in the constructive process.”
