I love the Istana Nurul Iman especially when I found out that the Architect behind it is a Filipino.

This is a funny question I know, but does anyone have access to - or know where I could find - a plan (or plans), section and/or elevations of the Topkapi Palace? I know it's a hugely complex palace, but I'm trying to find a plan of the whole palace, plus a few details of the area of the throne room etc. I'm an architecture student and I'm really struggling to find anything, as I don't read or write any Turkish!

Any help would be hugely appreciated!

Seriously now, what is the point of the thread, Western vs Eastern palaces is not very fair comparison. France alone, hell, Île-de-France alone can beat all of Asia and Africa combined by a huge margin, and that is not about arts, architecture or anything, its about Imperial Europe ruling the world for half a millennium. I mean just Versailles are basically a city of palaces. If you consider the works of art inside that European palaces too, then the comparison becomes ridiculous....

These are just a few from the suburban area surrounding Paris alone!
Versailles which cannot be captured in a single picture since they are basically a city


Louvre:


Palais-Royal


Château d'Écouen


Fontainebleau


Château de Maisons


Saint-Germain-en-Laye


Château de Vincennes


Château de Compiègne


Palais du Luxembourg


Palais de la Légion d'Honneur


Conciergerie


Palais Bourbon


Élysée Palace


Seriously it is insane, the list for Paris alone goes on and on.....

How is it even possible to compare eastern to western? So different yet both so great in their own way.

Just look at the following examples of how different their arcitecture stle can be. Impossible to shoose.

I think the number of palaces in Asia is more than the population of Europe!! Palaces were being built in Asia thousands years before that Europeans started to build small houses for themselves, even modern European palaces can be said to be just some small buildings in comparison to some ancient Asian palaces, like Persepolis which has a floor area of 125,000 sq. meters and was built by some millions workers from almost all known ancient countries in 180 years.
