SORTING CONTEMPORARY ITEMS: METU Student works

“SORTING CONTEMPORARY ITEMS: METU Student works” is an online exhibition presenting twenty-nine posters co-produced by the students of architecture in the course ARCH430 Seminar on Contemporary Architecture, which was co-instructed by Lale Özgenel, Pelin Yoncacı Arslan, and Nesrin Erdoğan. Each poster carries with it a different vision of the past, of the precedents, of the icons of architecture. Tracking all of these visions simultaneously on a 2D surface is almost impossible, yet it is worth to PLAY!
