What can we learn from the Seljuk and Ottoman craftsmen and builders who for centuries made the masterpieces we so admire now? Their work showed great skill, creativity and an innovative ethos. They could make new compositions in which the bent the rules but did not break the rules. How can we learn to do the same? What are those design rules that have worked for hundreds of years in Turkey, India, Afghanistan, Egypt, Andalucia and elsewhere?
In this presentation, author Eric Broug will address this issue in a practical way. How can we apply this design tradition in a contemporary context? Benefiting from the opportunities that technology offers us, how can we be creative and innovative and still stay true to this design traditions.
This presentation is aimed especially at an audience of architecture and design students and, of course, architects and designers. Everyone is welcome of course.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
