architectanddesign The New Mosque (Yeni Cami) is located in #Eminönü neighborhood of #Istanbul, right next to the Spice Market and Galata Bridge at the entrance of the Golden Horn. The mosque was ordered by the Queen Mother (Safiye Sultan, mother of Mehmet III) but its construction lasted for 66 years between 1597-1663 because of interruptions such as financial problems, earthquakes, fires, and engineering problems in its foundations for being built just next to the water. During this long period, three different architects were in charge of the construction. Finally the construction was completed during the reign of Sultan Mehmet IV. The designers were Davut Ağa, Dalgıç Ahmed Paşa and Mustafa Ağa. 📸: @mc.atolye #architectanddesign

@alexkriez The current building was originally constructed as a church between 532 and 537 on the orders of the Byzantine EmperorJustinian I and was the third Church of the Holy Wisdom to occupy the site, the prior one having been destroyed by rioters in the Nika Revolt. It was designed by the Greekgeometers Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralles.[5] The church was dedicated to the Wisdom of God, the Logos, the second personof the Trinity,[6] its patronal feast taking place on 25 December, the commemoration of the birth of the incarnation of the Logos in Christ.[6] Although sometimes referred to as Sancta Sophia (as though it were named after Sophia the Martyr), sophia being the phonetic spelling in Latin of the Greek word for wisdom, its full name in Greek is Ναός της Αγίας του Θεού Σοφίας, Naos tēs Hagias tou Theou Sophias, "Shrine of the Holy Wisdom of God"
