About the book

The author discusses ways in which the Balkan Ottoman architectural heritage can be made more relevant to Ottoman architectural narratives in general.

One possibly fruitful axis of investigation, be claims, exists along “centres-peripheries,” an approach devised to describe and explain the structural relationship between an advanced metropolis, or “centre,” and a less developed periphery.”

In this analytical model, lack of synchrony with the metropolis (including provincialism”) is not assumed as a given but as product of this uneven relationship.

 Rather than to merely test this theory for its applicability to the Ottoman-Balkan context, he explores the question of to what extent new knowledge can be generated by this analytical models axis of investigation, and to what extent it can help track and explain change.

 The author ultimately suggests that this heritage is, to a good extent, the very result of changing centre-periphery relations within the Ottoman realm; he stakes out four broad periods in which centre-periphery relations have informed conceptual design in the Ottoman Balkans in different ways.
