The project teams were leaded by Dr. Karim Hadjri, Dr. Alan Jones, David Allardyce from Queen's University, Dr. Derya Oktay, Dr. Naciye Doratlı, Dr. Şebnem Hoşkara, Dr. Mukaddes Faslı, Dr. Beril Özmen Mayer and Dr. Fevzi Özersay from EMU, and Dr. Hassina Nafa from GAU. The proposals were presented to all members of Faculty of Architecture in the end of the intensive workshop, in the form of a review session. The fruitful event has been highly appreciated by all participants, and the visitinggroup from the UK expressed their wishes to keep in touch for further collaborations.
