The Ottoman kÃ¼lliye between the 14th and 17th centuries :its urban setting and spatial composition
MetadataShow full item record
At the state scale it was found that a good level of sensitivity was utilized when planning for new kÃ¼lltyes. Larger cities had a larger number of kÃ¼lltyes and more complex programs for these kÃ¼lltyes. kÃ¼lltyes in small cities were programmed so as to serve the small community adequately without being oversized. kÃ¼lltyes in cities had more educational facilities while kÃ¼lltyes in the country were more oriented towards serving travelers. Within the city itself. central areas housed larger kÃ¼lltyes; while residential neighborhoods had smaller kÃ¼lltyes since they were intended to serve only that particular neighborhood.
The number and kind of facilities were affected by the particular period during which kÃ¼lltyes were built. During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries kÃ¼lltyes were large and housed a large variety of services. That period was a period of growth and prosperity. Later centuries exhibited a different trend where kÃ¼lltyes became smaller and included simpler programs. Reasons for this new trend could be the existence of enough services and the economic deterioration of the state.
