Treasure Hunt Workshop

October 8, 2018 - October 17, 2018
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM


Studio-X Istanbul organized the Treasure Hunt workshop in the Pavilion of Turkey at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia between October 8 and 14, 2018,  in collaboration with Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul, the Sakip Sabanci Center, and the Columbia University Center for Study in Venice at Casa Muraro. Professor Holger Klein moderated the Treasure Hunt workshop, which aimed to find out the similarities and interaction between Istanbul and Venice, and the result of this interaction. Participants documented Byzantine and Ottoman elements that can be seen in and on the façades of several buildings, and at the end of the workshop, they exhibited the “process” of their journey and how Istanbul and Venice influenced one another.
