Architect's Archives

Sedad Hakki Eldem

In the shadow of the Hagia Sophia and the Suleymaniye Camii only an extreme responsibility towards one's own work and towards history can be the basis for continuity into the present and the future: continuity of thought and belief, continuity of the structure and fabric of the built environment, and continuity of excellence in architecture. This continuity forms the basis of today's goals and statements, of an architecture rooted in the local heritage and at the same time encompassing and projecting a global search and development. An architect who responded to this challenge convincingly is Sedad Hakki Eldem.
