New Types of Buildings Emerging in the 19th Century Ottoman World

Nineteenth century has been regarded as the locus of change for radical novelties in the government mentality and life style of the Ottoman Empire. The buildings, which constitute the most important and permanent signs of change in life style, serve as historical and social documents. The transformation of Ottoman society in the nineteenth century can thus be traced on the base of these documents. With the development of cultural and commercial relations, existing building types developed and newones emerged. In this context, Military buildings, Official and Industrial Buildings, Schools, Commercial and Entertainment buildings and Health institutions were constructed. These newbuilding types, which reflect the newlife style, have also been used by the governors with the purpose of transforming society.
