Cyprus International University (CIU) Faculty of Fine Arts, Design, and Architecture (FADA), Department of Architecture, within the scope of World Architecture Day, organizes the ‘Arch-Ex 2021’ Student Projects Exhibition, and a seminar titled ‘The Unspoken within Architecture’.
CIU FADA Vice Dean and Department of Architecture Chair Assoc. Prof. Dr. Cemil Atakara, stating that the events have been organized in order to raise awareness among the TRNC community and the students in relation to the architecture occupation, went on to say, “Architecture is a field that must work together with a number of other disciplines. It is a lifestyle that differentiates itself from other disciplines due to its accumulation of artistic, engineering, and social knowledge”.
Atakara explained that each year World Architecture Day is celebrated on the first Monday of the month of October, and due to this, it has been decided for the opening of the exhibition to be made on 4th October, with the opening time of 18:00.
