Abstract

Ottoman Architecture, especially after Tulip Era, started to develop in a different direction. Architectural works formed during this period reflected this change in a very remarkable way. The purpose of this study is to shed light on the architecture of this period by creating a comprehensive assessment of garden kiosks built during the XIXth century as important elements of Ottoman garden architecture. It is accepted that garden kiosks were built in order to carry on the tradition of gardening in Ottoman society. The architectural attitude of the period is reflected in all details of garden kiosks and increasing the number of the examples plays an important role on shedding light on Ottoman garden architecture and history of architecture.
