Özet

Turkish architecture over the last 150 years has been plagued by its peroccupation with its integration with the West. Should it be embracing or reflecting Western cultural, technical and professional standards? Ugur Tanyeli provides the background to this pessimistic context and describes how a new generation of architects over the last 10 years have transcended this predicament by producing work that turns away from this obsession with identity.
