The City of Republic Ankara

Welcome to our post concerning the architecture of Ankara, Turkey's capital, with a history of thousands of years.

Despite its existence for thousands of years, Ankara has acquired its current architecture following the proclamation of the Republic. Ankara was shaped with "the First National Architectural Flow", and its silhouette today was developed at an incredible pace.

Ankara is a bureaucracy city... Its architecture was also shaped accordingly. The buildings of the Ministry of National Defence, the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Public Works and the Grand National Assembly are among the best examples telling us these structural features.

Ankara is the city of the civil servants and, of course, civil servants' children. Therefore, it stands out that housing mostly consists of the civil servants' houses. Moreover, even though Ankara is under the influence of the First National Architectural Flow, it also covers the significant examples of the Early Republican Era. One of the best examples of this can be indicated as Sait Bektimur's House. Besides, it is estimated that Sait Bektimur's House was built in the 1920s and, thus, considered as one of the products of the Early Republican Era. Many elements of the building indicate the typical features observed in the national architectural period.

Of course, Anıtkabir is the most striking building in the Ankara's architectural appearance offering features such as arch on the roof window, balcony design carried by the soffit and buttress. With its high monumental aspect, Anıtkabir stands out with its cut stone material. Besides, presenting an architecture with the Seljukian stonework designs, Anıtkabir offers both traditional and modern architecture.

This is how we see Ankara's architecture, which does not forget its history but embraces its future. You can find our other blog posts about the capital.
