Have you ever thought about what the cities you live in looked like in the past? Did you know that Istanbul is full of structures from the past? In this workshop, we study the works in the exhibit and explore different layers of the city and the geometrical shapes found in them. We then go on to depict the visual transformation of the city using color and shapes and create a narration of Istanbul using the 3D pop-up technique. This workshop develops our dexterity and three-dimensional thinking skills and allows us to visualize our dreams and freely express ourselves.
