October 21, 2005 – Prof. Filiz Yenisehirlioglu
Urban Texture and Architectural Styles after the Tanzimat

Illustrating her lecture with examples from Greece and Istanbul, Filiz Yenisehirlioglu will discuss the changes occurring in the urban fabric, architectural styles and inhabitants of Ottoman cities, after the Tanzimat. The formation of new institutions, in this period, required the importation of plans and building types unknown before the 19th century. As new governmental, educational, commercial and military buildings were introduced to the cities, both domestic architecture and interior decoration changed. Shaped by the modernist approach of the times and supported by the regulations of the Tanzimat, a new type of citizen emerged, needing new social spaces to circulate and to socialize in.
