of great human and cultural disaster
in Bam 2004 and south Asia 2005
You are cordially invited to participate in the conference , “Living in Earthen Cities – kerpic'05” to be held at Istanbul Technical University , in Istanbul – Turkey .
The focus of the conference has evolved from quality of life in earthen architecture, environmental and health care, towards disaster prevention. We hope that it will bring together the related disciplines of architects and engineers, on material, construction, marketing and environmental science, to create database, technology watch and strategy.
Workshop will cover the entire construction activities of alker (gypsum stabilized earthen material), where all the participants can take part.
Social and cultural program will offer interesting historical tour; distinguished dinner will welcome you on Bosphorus.
It will be a pleasure having you in Istanbul.
Dr Bilge ISIK
