IAED Seminar: “Curating a Survey: “A Global History of Architecture””, Sema Karamanoğlu, 12.30Noon May 21 (EN)

You are kindly invited to follow IAED SEMINAR: SPRING 2020-2021 organized by the Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design, FADA, Bilkent University.

Speaker: Sema Karamanoğlu

Date & Time: May 21, 2021, Friday, 12.30 pm.

This presentation focuses on a project that aims to exemplify if and how different histories of architecture can be told through curation of architectural images and to bring an alternative approach to architectural history survey books/courses through a proposed interactive web site. The project was based on a network analysis of a specific architectural history survey book, which aimed to show the density of relationships between space, time, and structure of the book. The proposed interactive web page aims to give the users an opportunity to utilize a selected data set of architectural images and curate their own architectural history. As a source for students, instructors and scholars from all fields of interest, the proposed web
page aims to highlight the fact that the history-writing process itself is a curation and to help audience and users, especially students, experience this first hand making of their own curations.
