Konya, Turkey

Ince Minare Medressi has the best gateway I have seen of the Seljuk architecture. Script from the Koran is sculpted in stone, wrapping around the gateway like any architect would want to do today. The gate is at once monumental in its form but the details suggest motion, twisting and distoring. The skin is more active then any of the rock star architects could do today, and better built.

"The room is the beginning of architecture. It is the place of the mind. You in the room with its dimensions, its structure, its light respond to its character, its spiritual aura, recognizing, that whatever the human proposes and makes, becomes a life."
