The book submits the idea that İslamic cities have given up their cultural values for the sake of westernization, and offers solutions on how to correct the situation. T.Cansever is the only person ever to have won the Aga Khan award twice. Drawing on knowledge of both contemporary and conventional masters, Cansever explores the possibilities of basing the layout of a city on Islamic ideas.
