SAKARYA VE ÇEVRESİNDEN EV ÖRNEKLERİ / THE HOUSES OF SAKARYA
Although Sakarya and its environment are very rich in terms of civil architectural buildings, these have not adequately been studied. It is found out that the civil architectural buildings in this province which was the first place for Ottoman architectural development have had a great importance during our historical journey of architecture. It is known that this province is on the 1st degree of earthquake zone. Frequent earthquakes have caused great damages to historical texture. Continuing traditional architectural housing in terms of plan and function, Sakarya houses particularly had been affected by aesthetic feeling of XIX. Century because of being near to İstanbul. Baroque, Rococo Empire and Neo-Classic style elements had selectively applied to houses parallel to Ottoman westernization art trends.
