Mimar Sinan: Court Architect of the Ottomans (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

Mimar (Architect) Sinan (d. 1588) was one of the most prolific architects the world has ever seen. During his career as the Court Architect of the Ottoman Empire, he oversaw the construction of over 300 mosques, bridges, schools, and other buildings, many of which still stand in what is now Turkey and the Balkans. Sinan’s beginnings as a military engineer in the Ottoman army corps and his goal to surpass the domes created for the churches of the Byzantines are well recorded. Through his body of work, including the Şehzade and the Süleymaniye Mosques in Istanbul, and the Selimiye in Edirne, we will examine his vision, his experimental approach to design, and his exceptional devotion to architecture as a craft.
