MEIN ISTANBUL | BENİM İSTANBUL’UM | MY ISTANBUL

The Moscow photographer, Denis Esakov, has captured the fifth façades of Europe's largest metropolis with a remote-controlled drone: roofs, domes, towering building cubes. In this small bibliographic picture book he portrays over seventy architecturally important objects from the past hundred years.
Urbanity and Density in 20th Century Urban Design
To this day, the history of urban planning in the twentieth century reads as if modernity had dissolved the traditional city configurations and radicalised the spatial and structural organisation of the city. Postmodern, on the other hand, saw a return to traditional urban forms.
