Book Description

Though little is known of Sinan’s personal life, J.M. Rogers has reconstructed his professional biography from his practice and that of the Court Architects after him. The detailed building accounts of Suleymaniye in Istanbul - one of Sinan’s greatest mosques - demonstrate his masterly coordination of planning, quantity surveying, work force management, and design and implementataion of waterworks, that enabled this vast project to be completed in just seven years.
