Erik Nitsche: Hotel Stad in Ankara, Turkey
Turkey, situated in Southwest Asia and Southeast Europe, is perhaps best known for its imposing Byzantine and Islamic architecture -- colorful, elaborately decorated churches where everything is subordinated to the central dome. An increasing European influence led to the Turkish version of Rococo, resulting in picturesque domestic buildings which have come to symbolize Ottoman architecture. Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1918, Turkish architects have incorporated a traditional approach while also becoming more visible to their Euorpean contemporaries. A fine example of modern Turkish architecture is the Hotel Stad in Ankara, Turkey. It is situated at the heart of the business, shopping, and entertainment districts, and the 225 rooms are equipped with every modern convenience.
