Sinan : Ottoman architecture and its values today by Godfrey Goodwin( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Godfrey Goodwin focuses on the work of one of the greatest sixteenth-century architects, Sinan Abdulmennan, showing how he revolutionized inherited Ottoman building methods, a tradition based on structure by an awareness of the psychology of space. Until Sinan, Ottoman architecture had been a reading of parts. He broke down the distinct forms that had created a certain rigidity, thus freeing interior space and interior form simultaneously. Underlying his architectural concepts are the mathematical theories and practices of Classical Greece. Sinan shared these ideals of proportion and balance with builders in the WestƯ indeed; the author argues that the work of Sinan and that of Bramante and Palladio must be seen as part of the same intellectual revolution

Sinan : architecte de Soliman le Magnifique by John Freely( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au seizième siècle, l?Empire ottoman est à son apogée. Alors que Michel-Ange travaille à la construction de Saint-Pierre du Vatican, Sinan, architecte impérial du sultan, érige les plus célèbres mosquées ottomanes, parmi lesquelles la Süleymaniye et la Selimye.0Qui aurait pu prédire le destin de cet enfant chrétien? sa famille est originaire d?Arménie? arraché aux siens pour servir l?Empire ottoman? Enrôlé et converti, le jeune Sinan parcourt le vaste territoire ottoman au sein du corps des janissaires. De Damas en Bulgarie, de Bagdad à Istanbul, ce fils de charpentier passe vingt-cinq ans dans le génie à construire et restaurer des ponts, des forteresses et autres édifices civils ou religieux. En 1538, il a cinquante ans quand, ses mérites reconnus, il est nommé architecte impérial sur ordre du sultan. Sous les règnes de Soliman le Magnifique, de Selim II, puis de Murat III, Sinan construit plus de cinq cents bâtiments (mosquées, palais, écoles, ponts, hôpitaux?) à travers l?empire

Sinan by J. M Rogers( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The buildings of Sinan (c. 1490-1588) are ranked with the finest of Renaissance Europe. He was born in Cappadocia, probably into a Greek Christian family. Drafted into the Janissaries during his adolescence, he rapidly gained promotion and distinction as a military engineer. He was appointed Court Architect in 1538 and held that post for the most productive, brilliant half-century in Ottoman architecture. His palaces, mosques, fountains, hospitals and tombs completely changed the face of the Ottoman capitals, Istanbul and Edirne." "Though little is known of Sinan's personal life, J. M. Rogers has reconstructed his professional biography from his practice and that of the Court Architects after him. The detailed building accounts of Suleymaniye in Istanbul - one of Sinan's greatest mosques - demonstrate his masterly coordination of planning, quantity surveying, work force management, and design and implementation of waterworks, that enabled this vast project to be completed in just seven years."--BOOK JACKET
