Yap Summer Program at MAXXI Roma

MAXXI and Insula architettura e ingegneria with Based Architecture present “Cose Turche” a conversation of six voices about Istanbul, aimed to recognize and trace the pulsating identity of a metropolis, which is able, with its current metamorphosis, to tell us about significant pieces of the third millennium urban culture.

Memory Architecture and public space in the XXI century
Now more than ever, Turkey in general and in particular Istanbul are undergoing a major cultural and economic change, that is closely implicated with urban development and territorial morphological transformation, in a tight twine between the urban politics, the rewriting history, economic expansion and collective partecipation- that are paradigmatic issues of contemporary metropolis.
