Abstract :
Studies Fossati's activity in Turkey during his term as architect to the Russian ambassador in Istanbul. Examines his architecture for patrons of various religions and nationalities, focusing on his work for the Turkish sultans and aristocracy, and observes that his designs respect the architectural traditions of his patrons. Refutes the criticism that 19th c. European architects like Fossati are guilty of a form of architectural colonialism in Istanbul through the imposition of extraneous styles. ;
