Abstract

From the beginning, dominantly focusing on displaying the various elements of tangible heritage, after the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, museums have been accepted as one of the tools for safeguarding intangible heritage for the implementation of the convention on the national level. Certain elements of intangible cultural heritage have not been practiced anymore due to the rapidly changing conditions and the technological developments, in this sense, museums perform leading roles on recalling the memory of disappearing cultural practices and expressions. This study aims to share a studio experience developed within the instruction in interior architecture for increase on the consciousness level of students about their grasp of the significance of museums through the process of safeguarding intangible cultural heritage.
