ARCH622WESTERNIZATION TRENDS IN EASTERN ARCHITECTURE AND ARTDOÇ.DR. NETİCE YILDIZARCHITECTUREThis course aims to study the changing manners in the architecture and art of the Eastern countries during the 18th and 19th centuries. Although several Eastern countries, such as Ottoman Turkey, Iran, India, Far-East, all developed their own individual styles based on their theories mainly based on ritual ideas during the medieval times and reached their apex in the 16th and 17th centuries, they tend to change their original characters during the 18th and 19th centuries due to the cultural impacts as a result of increasing diplomatic and commercial interactions with the western countries. The International Exhibitions organized in European countries also had a significant contribution for the development of western style of architecture with the new industrially produced building materials and decoration elements into the Eastern palaces and other buildings. Eastern sovereigns, with a competitive mood, almost followed this trend in their countries by patronizing western architects, artist and designers which resulted with parallel styles of buildings and interior decoration in Turkey, Iran, India and Egypt. This trend is still continued in Eastern countries. Thus the course will enable students to develop research and writing skills based on theoretical and comparative analytical methods about the buildings selected from relevant countries.
