Mahmoud, Hassan Abou. 1999. Adaptive Reuse of Historical Buildings in Turkey, Part 2. In Alam al-Bina. Abdelbaki Mohamed Ibrahim (ed). Cairo: Center for Planning and Architectural Studies, 10-14/211.
We present the Turkish experience of adapting historical buildings to contemporary use to increase their income to cover the maintenance cost, and to generate benefit for the neighorhood and the city. The Süleymaniye Complex is a model for this experience. It includes a touristic complex, a hospital for addiction, a small hospital for children. Many of the bazaars and shops in the surrounding area are reused historical structures. Dr. Hassan Abou Mahmoud is a lecturer in the Faculty of Engineering at al-Azhar University.
