Mihrimah Sultan Mosque in Edirnekapı was one of the most impressed me of Istanbul, on the road to Tekfur Sarayi along Theodosian walls

Islamic classical architecture = 8-13th century Arab architecture.

No one is building Ottoman buildings now, there's no Ottomans anymore, it's history. But the Ottomans took over the Byzantine Empire and adapted the existing architecture.

Just like when the Normans invaded Sicily and took it from the Arabs, they used the existing Arab and Byzantine styles and combined the two. Like the Palatine Chapel and la Zisa Palace in Palermo:

https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8826/1...c27d02f6_b.jpg



https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7076/7...f13ac2f2_b.jpg



https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3899/1...3d07efbe_b.jpg


Or how when the Spanish Christians invaded Andalusia they adapted the existing Islamic architecture and made the Mudejar style:

https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8471/8...d27eb567_c.jpg


Or how these building details in Lima:

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5139/3...af3a3e66_b.jpg



https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5139/3...af3a3e66_b.jpg

....are descendants of these earlier Medieval Islamic styles:



https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3432/3...a28e422e_b.jpg



https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7018/6...38dff294_b.jpg



https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2454/3...2c036487_b.jpg



https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2450/4...4ecc9ce2_b.jpg


Art and architectural styles have descendants, it has happened many times in history and all over the world. Just like the Incas borrowed from the Wari civilization and others, and how Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese architecture share a common ancestor in Chinese architecture, or how Georgian buildings in London or Neoclassical palaces in St. Petersburg are facsimiles of buildings from far away Greece.

No, the wind towers by themselves and out of context don't count, but Yazd as a whole does. It is definitely a product of the Persian variety of Islamic architecture and wouldn't look the way it looks without this culture and the political-religious instances that led to the specific aesthetic outcome you see today. Yes it's an ancient city with precedence in the pre-Islamic world, but I don't want to repeat what I wrote in the previous post.

Also saying the "Persian variety" is too nationalistic and introverted of a label. It exists outside of Iran as well, and it had its origins in cosmopolitan, multinational imperial Baghdad in the Abbasid age.

If I'm not wrong, those balconies were banned in Spanish cities by the end of the 15th c. though (they hindered the penetration of light and air into the narrow streets). They survived in the Canary islands, where they mixed with the northern-Spanish rural tradition of open wooden balconies (so it's not only an Islamic influence) and from there it extended to the Americas.

My favorite piece of mudéjar influence in the Americas has to be this [reconstruction of a] dome (the original one was destroyed during an earthquake) covering the staircase of a monastery (San Francisco) in your hometown, which I suppose you know:


http://diccionarioarteconpedro.blogs...ejar-arte.html

And this 16th. c. public fountain in southern Mexico (Chiapa de Corzo).

That's not considering more indirect influences (wooden ceilings, ceramic tiles, certain arches, etc.).
