Davutoglu guarantees the silhouette in Istanbul
Prime Minister Davutoglu , “Our clear directives to our Environment and Urbanism Minister and to all the other ministers are from now on not to build any structures which are sticked like a dagger to Istanbul”.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and his wife Sare Davutoglu attended together the commemorate ceremony of Mimar Sinan at Suleymaniye Mosque.The Deputy Prime Minister Yalcin Akdogan,the European Union Minister Volkan Bozkir,the Environment and Urbanism Minister Fatma Guldemet Sari and the Governor of Istanbul Vasip Sahin also attended the program.
Prime Minister Davutoglu made a speech at the ceremony , ” I grew up in the historical peninsula in Fatih,the heart of Istanbul but wanted everytime to own a house in Salacak.Because if you grow up in the heart of it you live the beauty inside yourself.You can see from the outside one of the most beautiful silhouette’s in this peninsula.When you look at Suleymaniye it looks like a mountain.But a processed mountain… The ones who built structures later considered everytime the harmony inside the historical silhouette and the Suleymaniye.They tried to create a wholeness with Suleymaniye and the little,elegant architecture which were built.”
“The sky is a freak of nature called cage “
Davutoglu,” Now is the time for accounting my friends.I will not avoid to give names.If you are in a ship and come closer to Istanbul you will see in one side Suleymaniye and on the other side a ‘sky cage’ called a freak of nature.We get very upset,crushed down and riuned that our generation didnt take any lessons from Mimar Sinan.
Prime Minister Davutoglu ,” Our main mission is to devote this city to our next generation which we got as a trust from the previous generation.If we would take our lesson from Mimar Sinan ,we wouldnt built unsuitable structures to this city’s nature and tissue.The structures which are dominating the peninsula and other areas of this city are a betrayal.”
