Visit to Istanbul


I have visited Istanbul many times, it has a vibrancy and dynamism that most European cities lack. Some of its modern architecture is lacking the adventurous spark that you would expect from such a fast moving and ever evolving city, but if you keep your eyes open you can see some inspiring structures 


At a guess this building was constructed in the Art Deco post modernist genre, simple clean lines with the typical full length long window design that you can see in a Bauhaus creation. It is in fact a Hotel in the Beşıktaş district of Istanbul on the European side, note that it is sandwiched in between two more forgettable buildings that you wouldn’t pay second thought to
