In the course of the presentations, the students took part in a workshop aiming to teach the design and application of natural stone & marble floorings and wall claddings. The students designed the floor and wall claddings of the spaces they design within the framework of their Interior Design Class projects.
The students were informed about whether the suitability of the stones they chose during designing for the space they are working on, the color and pattern alternatives of Turkish stones, and surface treatment shapes to be used according to the design themes.
In light of this information, the students visualized 3D designs using drawing programs. Assistant Dean İlker Kahraman, Instructors Zeynep Sevinç Karcı, Fulya Ballı, Dr. Aylin Gazi Gezgin and Research Assistant Selin Karagözler participated in the workshops with the participation of 70 students.
