whole ssc can see now how blind fanaticism can make
don't stop show us your envy.
Actually this is not entirely accurate. Yes many architects of the buildings shown here were Armenian (especially the palaces) and Levantines (Italians, French et al) but a great majority, especially in the areas portrayed in this thread, meaning Pera and Galata (Beyoglu, Karakoy) and elsewhere, were in fact Greeks. Not surprising considering they were the biggest group in the area at the time the buildings were constructed and over a third of the total population of Istanbul.

If you don't believe me, because in this thread I can see much denial and playing down the contributions of the Greeks, visit this exhibition next year which will highlight the prolific Greek architectural contributions, as part of Istanbul 2010 Cultural Capital of Europe.

Istanbul 2010 website

Greek architects of Istanbul

This is an exhibition project for exposing life stories and works of Roum architects who contributed a great deal to certain districts of Istanbul such as Eminönü, Sultanhamam, Karaköy, Beyoğlu, Tarlabaşı, Sıraselviler and Pangaltı in 19th and 20th centuries.

http://www.en.istanbul2010.org/PROJE/GP_518641
Roum of course means the Greeks of Turkey as they're known. As you can see the Greek contribution is substantial not just "a bit" as some of you are stating, hence this important exhibition. I encourage you all to go see it as an informative and educational experience. That way many of you will hopefully learn and gracefully accept the valuable Greek contributions to historical architecture in Istanbul (especially nineteenth and early twentieth century as portrayed in this thread) and finally stop denying and playing down their major contributions.

I don't blame many of you for being unaware, due to the political antagonism between Greeks and Turks, but as this forthcoming exhibition demonstrates, times have changed and it longer is necessay to play down, deny or even "erase" the truth of the significant Greek architectural (and other) contributions to Istanbul. In fact it's time to acknowledge and celebrate it. Makes sure you all go see the exhibition.

Here's to Istanbul, a great city!

The fact that Greeks as the residents of the city at the time contributed a lot to the architecture of Istanbul is indisputable and i am personally grateful for that. I wish we hadn't made them run away from the city.

Greek architects? Armenian architects? Turkish people themselves are a mix of Greeks and Armenians - how else would you explain that they don't look anything like other Turkic peoples?

Hey guys, here some of my pictures from Istanbul.

I also wandered through some of the less affluent areas (Kasımpaşa, Fener, Balat), so don't be surprised if I post just old houses of normal people and not only palaces.
After a little culture shock, I came to like the city by now, already having visited 5 times.
All pictures are own work.
Enjoy!


Rumeli Hisarı seen from the Bosporus.


An old house in Kasımpaşa.


The Galata Tower.


The Asian side, seen from Tünel by dusk.


The Greek Orthodox Church Aya Triada off Taksim Square.


Atatürk Kültür Merkezi (Atatürk Culture Centre) on Taksim Square.


A renovated house in Edirnekapı.


Chora Church (Kariye Camii) in Edirnekapı.


Inside the church, the cupola with golden mosaics.


More golden mosaics.


Three old wooden houses in Fener.


A shop in Balat.


The iconic wall of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, the highest authority of the Orthodox Church (at least in theory) in Fener.


The Greek College in Fener.


The Golden Horn at sunset from Pierre Loti.


The Ortaköy Mosque, the lights in the background are of the first Bosporus bridge.


The entrance of Dolmabahçe Palace, the last residence of the Sultans.


Now, my favourite building - the good old Hagia Sophia! Sorry, it was too big for my lens.


The cupola, unfortunately under renovation.


Inside Hagia Sophia, the way to the first floor.


A view of the second Bosporus bridge from Rumeli Hisarı, looking north.


Fishing in Arnavutköy and the first bridge.


And finally, the Asian side at night, seen from Robert College.

Some of my pics. I've took too many pics so I'm putting the ones that I find interesting and not-quite-known buildings. Enjoy

I think it was one of the most interesting buildings -a mosque- I've seen in Istanbul. Looks like those buildings in deserted American ghettos.

[IMG]http://i42.************/2ywfsrr.jpg[/IMG]

Tomb of a Sultan If I'm not mistaken. Dunno whose though.

[IMG]http://i44.************/f3tjeq.jpg[/IMG]

The ceiling of Topkapi Palace entrance.

[IMG]http://i41.************/2kpx53.jpg[/IMG]

Soğuksu street. The street between Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia. A small travel in time

[IMG]http://i39.************/33586ix.jpg[/IMG]


Ok that's all for now. More to come later. Sorry for the oversized pics, I'll resize them next time
