Aziz Scholar Samie Kayani designs installation in Istanbul Airport

Aziz Scholar, Samie Kayani, has designed an installation at Istanbul airport inspired by Islamic Heritage and Science.

The installation celebrates the work of Fuat Sezgin, a renowned scholar in the field of Islamic Studies. The Turkish government has declared 2019 as the year of Fuat Sezgin.

The exhibition was curated by a team from Usturlab in Istanbul, a social initiative that specialises in the production of educational materials for young people. The exhibition will run through to summer 2020.

Below can be seen a reproduction of a 13th century door mechanism, inspired by the original design by Ibn al-Jazari in his scholarly work, Book of Knowledge of Ingenious Mechanical Devices.

Samie Kayani is currently a PhD student, studying Islamic Architecture at the University of Liverpool.
