Review:

Winner of the 2006 Fuat Koprulu Book Prize, Turkish Studies Association

Honorable Mention for the 2005 Albert Hourani Book Award, Middle East Studies Association

"The long awaited book on Mimar Sinan by Gülru Necipoglu . . . offers a major new interpretation of his architecture that places him in the context of his time. . . . The drawings in this book are of the highest quality. . . . [T]hey show mosques in the context of their külliyes. . . . Indeed, this is one of the most comprehensively illustrated books on architecture that I have ever seen. . . . [This is] an outstanding book."-- Henry Matthews, The Art Book

" The Age of Sinan is a truly comprehensive survey of the great builder's work under the patronage of several Ottoman sultans and their wealthiest subjects. The clear and elegantly written text is richly illustrated with hundreds of superb photos and architectural drawings documenting the architect's extraordinary achievement. The author's command of a vast array of both textual and visual sources is equally extraordinary. Necipoglu not only opens up whole new ways of appreciating prominent features of a major visual culture, she suggests innovative integrative categories for understanding the interplay of royal patronage, socio-political hierarchies, and religious symbolism. She has achieved a balanced and seamless melding of context and background."-- John G. Renard, Religion and the Arts

"This book will stand the test of time, and much of it will not be superseded for several generations. It will not only form a new and more solid foundation for all later Sinan scholarship, but it will also shape the parameters of interpretation and discourse on classical Ottoman architecture."-- Yasser Tabbaa, Art Bulletin

White lettering to spine. 592 pages : illustrations (some color), maps, plans ; 29 cm. Clean, unmarked pages. Fine binding and cover. Hardcover. During his tenure as Chief Royal Architect (1539-1588) in the "Golden Age" of the Ottoman Empire, Sinan designed hundreds of structures that helped create the renowned urban image of Istanbul, particularly mosques with seemingly weightless, light-filled centralized domes that have been compared with developments in Renaissance Italy. His distinctive architectural idiom left its imprint over a vast empire extending from the Danube to the Tigris, and he became the most celebrated of all Ottoman architects.
