The Design and Architecture Society (DAS, previously known as TMT) held the fourth annual “Tasarım Bilkent” Design Week from March 31 through April 4. The event showcased many aspects of the field, such as tattoo design, jewelry design, computer-aided design techniques, urban design, interior design and graphic design.
Tasarım Bilkent kicked off on Monday with a presentation by Kızılay-based Indigo Informatics, and ended with a closing party in collaboration with the Erasmus Student Network on Friday night. A painting workshop conducted by Fatma Kara took place on Wednesday afternoon outside the FF Building, as passersby may have noticed.
Tasarım Bilkent has been DAS’s main event since the society’s establishment four years ago. DAS aims to bridge the gap between students and professionals, as well as to spark or support interest in design and architecture for students not studying in these fields. This year’s Design Week was successful in that it presented many niches within these areas—for example, tattooing—allowing students to see that their education can be a springboard to many different paths of their own making.
