Istanbul Design Biennial’s ‘Design Walks’ to Start Friday

“Design Walks,” part of the upcoming İstanbul Design Biennial offering visits to design studios, stores and ateliers across İstanbul, will begin this week, the İstanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) announced in a press release on Tuesday. Set to start on Friday, this year’s walks consist of 12 routes, including different visiting spots in Kuzguncuk, Çemberlitaş, Sultanahmet and Beyoğlu. 

“Design Walks” will also include thematic walks that explore the unique textures of İstanbul’s unique neighborhoods.

“The participants will be able to learn more about the architectural texture of the city, observe traditional crafts while soaking up the sights and sounds of this lively metropolis,” one of former the press releases for the biennial says. With Zoë Ryan as its curator, the second İstanbul Biennial will be held from Oct. 18 to Dec. 14 under the theme of “The Future Is Not What It Used to Be.”

“Design Walks” will continue until Dec. 14 in 20-person groups on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets are available at www.biletix.com and the main ticket office of İKSV. They are priced TL 35 and TL 25 (for students). For further information, go to tasarimbienali.iksv.org.
