Hassa Architecture

Hüdai Sirri Şenalp wrote his master thesis The Evolution of Ottoman Muqarnas for the degree of MA History of Art approved by School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He examines the evolution of Ottoman muqarnas, by referring to its predecessor, the Seljuk muqarnas. He shows that there is a continuum in the architecture of Anatolia. The Ottoman muqarnas is a natural development of its predecessors. In the formation of Ottoman muqarnas, usage of marble has extreme importance. The Ottomans brought new approaches and developed geometric schemes and 3D elements developed by Seljuks.

Nowadays, he works for Hassa Architects in Istanbul.
