‘Sinan, a contemporary of Palladio and Michelangelo, defined the look and feel of historic Istanbul, with its unforgettable skyline of domes and minarets, but he is also renowned for his engineering skills, and the bridges and aqueducts he designed. Unlike so many of his contemporaries however, many of his buildings are still in everyday use, serving both new and old communities in the ancient imperial city. Yet despite his increasing relevance today – the longevity and adaptability of his buildings are the essence of sustainable urban design – Sinan remains undermentioned.’
