Armenian architect: Sinan



There is a very interesting article in New York Times featuring all about the famous Armenian architect Sinan. Interestingly New York Times has omitted a very important information that he is indigenous to Asia Minor and is an Armenian. Do Americans ever omit anything that an American Indian has done? Never. Then how come New York Times omits it? Therefore, when you read an article, try to do your own research to complete your knowledge. As to be "politically correct" often in the media they omit crucial information. So I'm letting you know the missing link and info about Sinan. Below I'm including additional info to add to your knowledge about Armenian architects.

Read here all about the rave review the New York Times has posted in their travel section: entitled: Cultured Traveler
Tracking Turkey’s First Starchitect: http://travel.nytimes.com/2012/06/10/travel/tracking-turkeys-first-starchitect.html. You'll learn a bit more in fact about Armenian culture, which is totally omitted in this article.

Read all about Armenian architects in Asia Minor. Note that Armenians are indigenous people of present day Turkey.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Armenian_architects
