I was perusing a book on Turkish architecture and found a famous architect’s building. I remembered having taken a picture of that building. The architect is Vedat Tek. I have known his work as he holds a very important place in architecture and also he gave many lectures in my university. But, what shocked me was that the postoffice in Sirkeci is his first building. The facade is curved stone and marble. The building is truly astonishing as it has so many details. The sketch was from the picture that I had taken earlier. I will certainly visit the next time I am in Istanbul!
