Ralf Brand: Guest lecture at Bahçeşehir University / Istanbul

Ralf Brand gave a guest lecture at Bahçeşehir University in Istanbul on April 22nd 2014. The title of his talk was “The role of technology, citizens and technizens in the sustainable city”. The deliberate hybrid term technizen signals his proposal to steer clear of simplistic technical or social “fix” approaches in the discourse around sustainable urbanism.

Ralf followed an invitation of Prof. Bengü Uluengin, assistant dean of the faculty.
