Eldem, Sedad Hakki

Eldem, Sedad Hakki (1908–88). Turkish architect. A pupil (1929–30) of Poelzig, he attempted to merge his Modernist beliefs with Turkish architecture. His early works include the State Monopolies General Directorate, Ankara (1934–7), the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Istanbul (1942–3), and the Faculty of Sciences, Ankara (1943–5). The last two were influenced by Bonatz, with whom Eldem worked. His Taşlik Coffee-House (1947–8— destroyed) attempted to interpret C17 timber-framed Ottoman domestic architecture using C20 reinforced concrete as the structure. He won international recognition for his Zeyrek Social Security Agency, Istanbul (1962–4), and designed numerous buildings along the banks of the Bosphorus in which the influence of traditional Ottoman architecture, as illustrated in his magisterial Türk Evi (Turkish House) of 1984–7, is clear. A good example is the Rahmi Koç villa, Tarabya (1975–80). He also designed several embassy buildings in Ankara (1964–77).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
