Good Work. A little description or just the name of the site would be great.

hola todos

NOt Quite! It adapts from chinese and islamic architechure to make a combination of cultures!The Chinese mosque is indeed more Tibetan in style than Islamic, except for arabic calligraphic inscriptions and there being no statues..
The Blue mosque is I would say an evoltion of Byzantine architecture. HagiaSophia represents a true example of byzantine architecture. However, note that the inclusion of Minarets was a latter modification. also, most mosques in Turkey have compounded domes and are heavily adorned with Islamic architectural elements, such as mini domes, arches, Makaranas, and calligraphy.

Essentially correct. As Islam spread it adapted local architectural styles to its own needs. Ottoman Architecture, as glorious as it is, is adapted from the Christian Hagia Sophia as Cassie0507 states. Excellent examples of this talent for adaptation occurred all the way to Spain to the west and to India (Mughal/Mogul) and down to Indonesia. The style of decoration, the calligraphy, the mosaic patterns, etc, is purely Islamic.

They are still considered Islamic.
Bear in mind that, architecturally, "Islamic" one big umbrella term dealing with either a structure that deals directly with Islam or exemplifies an Islamic community.
So Moorish, Persian, Javan, Somali, and Abassid architecture are all of extremely diverse forms, and many may have non-Islamic roots to them, but they still fall under the Islamic umbrella. And it is seen that both Sino-Islamic and Ottoman architecture have diverged enough from their roots to also be in that category.
