Due to the lighting system renovated in the scope of the Green Campus project run by the intensive collaboration of academic members of the Landscape Architecture Department (the Faculty of Architecture), our campus has gained a new spectacular view.


From the outset of the project the lighting fixture and general lighting design on Ayazağa campus have been implemented under the responsibility of Landscape Architecture academic member Assoc. Prof. Yasin Çağatay Seçkin.
