@Eight students and two professors from the Department of Architecture and Design of Bahcesehir University of Istanbul in Turkey will come join us at the Koshien Hall and the Architectural Studio on Kami-Koshien Campus of MWU from June 20th to August 4th before the summer vacation. Bahcesehir University is located at the center of the new town of Istanbul, which is a beautiful place where the Bosporus Straits spreads out ahead therefrom and the Asia side of Istanbul can be seen beyond the straits.

@Eight students will receive special Japanese training before their visit to Japan, and will be divided into a junior and a senior design studio of the Department of Architecture of MWU in Japan, and tackle the 3rd design project of the junior year architectural design studio III, and the 2nd design project of the senior year architectural design studio V. They will gain knowledge, learn techniques, and increase their sensitivity necessary in the design of architecture. They will also learn Japanese culture and interact with the Japanese students.@The junior year design project is to rebuild the Hanshin Koshien Station with a large roof of membrane structure. The senior year design project is to design a pleasant urban space for gShioashiya districth, which is a reclaimed ground in Ashiya city, on the theme of "paradise of the waterside (urban development from the waterside)".

@In addition, the eight students will participate in a basic design studio of freshmen, in which they can experience the traditional culture and technology of Japan, such as Ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement) with the guidance of Mr. Ryuho Sasaoka who is a headmaster designate of Ikebana Misho-ryu Sasaoka in Kyoto, Woodwork with the guidance of Mr. Masanobu Araki who is a master carpenter in Kyoto. They also will participate in fieldworks on Saturdays, in which they can deepen their understanding of the cities and architectures in Japan, such as Todai-ji temple, Horyu-ji temple, Himeji castle, Joudo-do in Joudo-ji temple, gHunayah at Ine town which is peculiar townscape of the waterside

@On the other hand, in consideration of a possibility that Japanese students from the Department of Architecture of MWU will participate in the training of the construction in preserving and restoring Turkish architectures in the future, the professors from Turkey will teach a beginnerfs class on Turkish and have special lectures about Turkish architectures for the Japanese students.

@Bahcesehir University and the Department of Architecture of MWU have a friendly association for some time now. Mr. Enver YUCEL, the chairman of the Board of Directors of Bahcesehir University, Mr. Ahmet EYUCE, the dean of the Department of Architecture and Design of Bahcesehir University, and also other members, visited MWU twice last year, and the general exchange agreement was concluded between MWU and Bahcesehir University.
