Competition: we’ve teamed up with   Istanbul Design Biennial to give away 25 prizes to Dezeen readers, including tickets to design walks around the city and guided tours of the festival. The second Istanbul Design Biennial is co-sponsored by Arçelik, Doğuş Group Bilgili Holding, ENKA Foundation and VitrA and it is held free of charge. Ryan says Istanbul has a thriving creative community, so it seems an especially appropriate city in which to reflect on the field of design.
