About the Authors
  • With its vast scale, immense cost, extraordinary speed of erection, and stunning interior space, the creation of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul between 532-537 is unparalleled in premodern, Western architecture. As such, the achievement begs answers to three important questions: the nature of the theoretical and material resources available to the early designers to achieve this great building; the behaviour over the centuries of its much modified structure under the action of environmental loadings; the ability of the present-day structure to withstand a major earthquake. In this volume, scholars and professionals from different disciplines exchange ideas and new information pertaining to the historical background, physical environment, design, and the state of the Hagia Sophia building structure over time.
