Beyza Cicik is an MPhil student at the CDH, who focuses on the semiotic, aesthetical and socio-spatial roles that architecture assumes in the digital age and how these roles reshape and recontextualise the concept of the modern city as an urban “palimpsest”. Having completed her double major undergraduate programme in English Language & Literature and in Turkish Language & Literature at Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, at the CDH, she aims to provide an unorthodox form of architectural narrative by combining the material with the fluidity of design and the aesthetic interpretation of digital language.

Beyza is also a knowledgeable wine professional with a concern of responsible consumption and production. She intends to grasp wine’s role in the cultural anthropology of food and to develop more environment-friendly techniques for cultivating the Aegean grapes by preserving regional tastes.
