Leander's Tower (Kiz Kulesi)
TURKEY

Situated on a small island at the mouth of the Bosphorus, it was constructed in 1719. The romance of the tower finds its root in an ancient myth along the lines of Romeo and Juliet: boy (Leander) falls in love with girl (the Aphrodite priestess hero); boy drowns swimming to meet girl; girl finds lover's corpse; girl commits suicide. In the past the tower has been used as a prison and a quarantine hospital. The tower is currently in service as a panoramic restaurant and tea lounge.

The building replica took approximately 1100 hours to construct.

Torogan Maranao House
PHILIPPINES

The Torogan is the ancestral home of the Sultan or Datu (village chief) at Maranao Village in southern Philippines. The Torogan is distinctive amongst its kind in Southeast Asia because it is the only one that has the architectural feature of the panolong, a butterfly-like end beam that protrudes in the front of the house. It is intricately adorned with okir motif, either calved or painted. Okir refers to a range of folk motifs, usually of plants, geometric forms, dragons or serpent that are prominent in Maranao artwork.

The building was constructed on posts, resting on rocks which act as rollers to prevent earthquake damage.






The Trakai Castle
LITHUANIA

The Trakai Castle was built by the Grand Duke Vytautas Magnus as his principal residence in 1405-1408. The castle, built of stone and brick, stands on Trakai Island in Galves Lake. The castle was used by grand dukes of Lithuania until 1655 when it was partially destroyed by the advancing Russian troops. Restoration work, many times interrupted, is still progressing.
