Conference
Art Nouveau Architecture in Beyoğlu - Zafer Akay

Speaker: Zafer Akay

The building activities in Beyoğlu which started with embassy buildings after Tanzimat gradually diversified with the Istanbul Fine Arts Academy “Sanayi-i Nefise”.  While Tepebaşı - İstiklal Caddesi transformed into the European entertainment center of the Ottoman capital with its cafes and theaters, it also turned into a showcase of the architectural styles and movements of the period. Art Nouveau which characterizes the turn of the century has also many representatives, produced by local architects such as Karakach brothers, Georgiadis brothers, Kyriakides and Novokosmos creating one of the colors of Beyoğlu.
