Pop-In Call #8

Build Community, Space Will Come w/ ATÖLYE's Engin Ayaz and Atilim Şahin

Engin Ayaz and Atilim Sahin are the co-founder and creative hub director of ATÖLYE, a strategic design studio and innovation platform located in an old beer brewery in Istanbul, Turkey.

At ATÖLYE, 40 strategists and designers collaborate, co-learn and co-create with a community of 150 individuals and organizations to solve wicked problems.

How does that work exactly?

That’s what we asked Engin and Atilim. In this pop-in call they talk about:

  • The founding story of ATÖLYE, its roots in Stanford's and NYU Tisch’s ITP program, and future development
  • How ATÖLYE curates and coordinates a community of 150 individuals and organizations to collaborate with its strategic design studio
  • Engin’s and Atilim’s vision of bringing the learnings of ATÖLYE to inspire and build new community spaces around the world
