4th of Design Week organized by European University of Lefke (EUL) Faculty of Architecture held with the name of “Workshop Lefke ‘19”. Under the framework of this theme which was chosen with the aim of Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Bauhaus Design School and honoring its contributions to the world of design, students and academicians have designed, produced and exhibited their works in 8 different workshops for 5 days.
Students discovered the versatility of design discipline in workshops that focus on different productions
Giving information about the design week, Dean of Architecture Faculty Prof. Dr. Lerzan Aras said that the students had great pleasure in producing for 5 days and everyone was very happy with the results. Aras also said that they have observed that the students not only learned the lessons but they also gained the ability to apply what they learned in brand new areas and added that in mixed groups of all classes and departments, students spend a very sharing, instructive and entertaining process together.
The art of Bauhaus was introduced in two different workshops and the costumes and masks created according to the design principles were presented with a fashion show.
Pointing out that the works produced within the framework of the basic principles of the Bauhaus school have been chosen to carry the principles of basic design and connect all the design areas, Aras said that “Within this framework, groups carried out abstraction and reinterpretation works under the concept of indoor and outdoor wall painting and graffiti and ‘mood board” at different stations. They rediscovered forms, experimenting transition from two to three dimensions”. Aras pointing out that the works of Bauhaus artists were reinterpreted and transformed into 3rd dimension and added that “The art of Bauhaus was introduced in two different workshops and the costumes and masks created according to the design principles were presented with a fashion show. Students who transfer the Bauhaus principles which are very important for graphic design to their own designs and color them on wooden boards also prepared kites containing the same theme and they flew the kites in the last day”.
Pointing out that all students and instructors of the Faculty attended the works, Aras said that at the end of the design week, the students shared the main ideas of their work with the visitors and that some of the designs were taken to the permanent exhibition in the interior parts of the faculty building. Aras also said that outdoor productions will also be open to visits for a while and added that the visuals reflecting the stages of all works will be put together and they will form a catalog work.
