New York Times wrote about Turkish Architect Sinan
American New York Times newspaper in its Saturday supplement published the article of Andrew Ferren "Tracking Turkey´s First Starchitect" in which the author tells about 300 creations of the most authorized Turkish architect of Ottoman Empire Sinan. The author mentions that Sinan is the first "Stararchitect" not only of Turkey but maybe the whole world.

An amazing thing about Mimar Sinan was also his long career. He was the head architect during three sultans who were not known as the easiest employers. Sinan survived personal tragedies, struggles for power and in spite of everything kept creative till his late years. The loyalty he felt against the Empire, the obvious understanding that changing Ottoman sultans had for his greatness  -  all this tells us that in addition to a brilliant architect he must have been an exceptional personality also.
