Abstract

MASS’(Mediterranean Architecture Schools Students’) Workshop 2015 is jointly organised by the Department of Architecture of Suleyman Demirel University (SDU) and Akdeniz University, which was held from May 5–9, 2015 in Isparta. 60 students from SDU and 30 students from Akdeniz University were participated in this event. A main topic of this workshop is ‘Contemporary addition in the historic context’. Isparta Uzum Bazaar and Koy Bazaar including two different historic areas have been studied. The two groups of students have designed top covers to the streets of these areas. The workshop aimed to combine students’ research and theoretical information; and also, develop conversion skills of design projects. Thus, the workshop draws theory—research—application bonds in the minds of students. It offers students free interaction and sharing, to gain group work experience, to provide intellectual connection and to develop thinking skills in short time. Finally, the MASS workshop event improved with participation from the different Mediterranean countries.
