IUE INTERIOR ARCHITECTS’ OVERSEAS EXPERIENCE
Students of Izmir University of Economics (IUE) Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design will bear witness to Japanese world of design. Thanks to the 80% scholarship provided by the Japanese Government, 5 Turkish students will get a chance to observe the Japanese design approach up close. Students will take a trip to the city of Chiba and the surrounding architectural and art centers as part of the Exchange/Communication Program between IUE Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design and Chiba University Department of Architecture. They will also get a chance to experience traditional and contemporary architectural work. IUE interior architects will be attending the architectural contest with their project they will develop at Chiba University.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Deniz Hasırcı, Head of IUE Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design, stated that they were in collaboration with Prof. Kaname Yanagisawa, Head of Department of Architecture, Chiba University, on various projects since 2004, and that Japanese Government supported IUE students’ internship and helped them broaden their horizons.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hasırcı said, “We can see a significant improvement in language skills, world views and intellectual levels of students as a result of their internship experience. They get a chance to learn about a new culture in every way, and observe the study environments, projects, and design approaches of students at Chiba University. And this year 5 students will get a chance to learn about Japanese design approach with an 80% scholarship”.
‘Design and tradition’
Hasırcı also stated that students would stay with Japanese families and learn about their culture, and they would attend the architectural contest with their project they will be developing at Chiba University. She said, “Students will get an opportunity to perform internship at both Chiba University studios as well as at design and interior architecture offices at Tokyo. Some of our students choose to go to Japan for their graduate studies and employment opportunities after this experience”.
‘Excitement is in the air’
One of the internees, Yasin Özesen, said that he was dreaming about an internship experience in Japan since his first day at the faculty. He said, “I believe this program will be much more than just an internship, it will have many benefits. It will be a great gain to be able to view designs of a totally different culture and getting to know new people. I also feel excited about entering a contest with our project at Chiba University”.
Another student, Beyza Sarıoğlu, mentioned that the idea of doing project with different people was very exciting. Sarıoğlu said, “We will get a chance to observe their idea of design and how they finish projects. We’ve heard about Japanese work discipline and way of living up until now. We are given an opportunity to see it first-hand now”.
