The Edge-Water&Culture is an international, multidisciplinary architectural event that will take place in Istanbul, focusing on building a natural environment and the notion of edge as a dynamic interchange among realities, materials, cultures, identities and memories.

Thinking the Edge- Water&Culture was born as a result of the previous successes of Thinking The Edge Milano 2010 and Water Front Hong Kong 2011. Istanbul provides the perfect setting for an architectural event that explores the dynamic r elations between water and culture, exemplified by an ever changing, multicultural society and its beloved Bosphorus.

Thinking the Edge-Water&Culture events will include: WORKSHOPS attended by students from twelve universities all over the world, SEMINARS and ROUND TABLES chaired by prominent representatives of the architectural and inter disciplinar y fields, as well as EXHIBITIONS and a COMPETITION opened to students and professionals.
