Présentation de l'éditeur

The mosques of Istanbul represent the splendour of Islamic architecture. Their central domes, rising above the skyline of the city, convey both the ideals and ambitions of powerful Ottoman Sultans and the brilliance of the architects who created them. This book places these buildings in their historical, religious and social context. It traces the evolution of the Ottoman mosque from small, fourteenth century examples in the first Ottoman capitals, Bursa and Edirne, to those built after the capture of Constantinople in 1453, and to the vast centralised structures commissioned by Suleyman the Magnificent in the sixteenth century. The daring experiments in space, light and structure devised by Michelangelo s Ottoman contemporary Mimar Sinan constitute a high point of the book, but the innovations of the Baroque and Neoclassical eras which followed are also fascinating.The author shows how these buildings are set in complexes of social and educational buildings that form the nuclei of neighbourhoods. He also offers insights into Ottoman life and the patronage of the sultans and viziers, as well as powerful women of the court. With full colour illustrations and a lively, informative text, "Mosques of Istanbul" is indispensable both to visitors to the city and to those wishing to understand Ottoman architecture. The book concludes with maps and itineraries for walking tours in Istanbul, Bursa and Edirne that lead visitors through carefully planned sequences of mosques by easy and convenient routes.

The best 20 juillet 2015

I've used this book on three trips to Istanbul. It's accurate, easy to follow, and has about as much detail as a curious traveler can absorb. There are a few pretty good guide books in English for Istanbul. This is the best.

Good book for touring the Mosques of Istanbul 8 mai 2014

If you are an architect, or a student of the history of architecture, or have travelled extensively to other Islamic countries and have seen many mosques to which to compare the mosques of Turkey, this book may be particularly helpful.

I went to see as many mosques as I could, as they are amazing and tell a big story of Turkey and Istanbul. But, probably because I'm not educated enough, after a while they did start to run together - even as I was amazed by them all!
