A beautifully designed poster-size tourist map of Istanbul showcases each building, street and monument in bird’s-eye perspective. It represents the city in 1966, when it still included surprisingly large green surfaces.
The map was designed by architects Şevket Özden (1926-2020), İlban Öz and Kerim Çalapverdi.
Şevket Özden was active mostly in the time from the 1960s until 1990s. He had a personal interest in researching antique and late Ottoman buildings. The second architect involved in the design of this map, İlban Öz, also worked as a restorer of old buildings. His most famous project was a renovation of the Topkapı Palace, where Öz made several important discoveries.
