Mid-Century Modernism in Turkey : Architecture Across Cultures in the 1950s and 1960s (Hardcover)
about this item
Mid-Century Modernism in Turkey studies the unfolding of modern architecture in Turkey during the 1950s and 1960s. The book brings together scholars who have carried out extensive research on post-WWII modernism in a global context.
The authors situate Turkish architectural case studies within an international framework during this period, providing a close reading of how architectural culture responded to ubiquitous post-war ideas and ideals, and how it became intertwined with politics of modernization and urbanization.
This book contributes to contemporary scholarship to reconsider post-war architecture, beyond canonical explanations.
