E is for Eldem

In the early 1930s, Sedad Eldem rejected the Beaux-Arts tradition and gave his support to early functionalism. Eldem's works developed partially from the nationalistic atmosphere of the new post-war Turkish Republic with the "creation of a modern national style" and borrowing from the plans of old Turkish houses. His works melded a functionalist language with traditional Turkish elements, however the results aways displayed a strict structural expression.
