Sinan by J. M Rogers( Book )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 31 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."--Jacket

The age of Sinan : architectural culture in the Ottoman Empire by Gülru Necipoğlu( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his tenure as Chief Royal Architect (1539-1588) in the "Golden Age" of the Ottoman Empire, Sinan designed hundreds of structures that helped create the renowned urban image of Istanbul, particularly mosques with seemingly weightless, light-filled centralized domes that have been compared with developments in Renaissance Italy. His distinctive architectural idiom left its imprint over a vast empire extending from the Danube to the Tigris, and he became the most celebrated of all Ottoman architects. In this lavishly illustrated, major new assessment of Sinan's oeuvre, Gulru Necipoglu challenges standard views of Sinan as a "Turkish Michelangelo" driven solely by an insatiable urge for artistic experimentation. Her innovative analysis shows that Sinan's rich variety of mosque designs sprang from a process of negotiation between the architect and his elite patrons, both men and women. Defined though they were by social and territorial hierarchies and associated notions of identity, memory, and decorum, Sinan's mosques simultaneously shaped these conceptions. The Age of Sinan draws on a wealth of primary sources to reveal the chief architect's monuments as bearers of previously unrecognized dimensions of meaning. A sophisticated study of the cultural and social history of Ottoman architecture, interpreting the oeuvre of a seminal figure in the early modern eastern Mediterranean world, it is must reading for scholars and students of art history and other fields with an interest in the Ottoman Empire

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

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 12 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

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's autobiographies : five sixteenth-century texts by Sinan( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and Multiple languages and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixteenth century Ottoman architect Sinan is today universally recognized as the defining figure in the development of the classical Ottoman style. In addition to his vast oeuvre, he left five remarkable autobiographical accounts, the so-called "Adsiz Risale", the "Risaletu'l-Mi'mariyye", "Tuhfetu'l-Mi'marin", "Tezkiretu'l-Mi'mariyye" and "Tezkiretu'l-Bunyan" that provide details of his life and works. Based on information dictated by Sinan to his poet friend Mustafa Sa'i Celebi shortly before his death, they exist in multiple manuscript versions in libraries in Istanbul, Ankara, and Cairo. The present volume contains critical editions of all five texts, along with transcriptions, annotated translations, facsimiles of the most important variant versions, and an introductory essay that analyzes the various surviving manuscripts, reconstructs their histories, and establishes the relationships between them
