Abstract

This article examines the process that formed the urban fabric of early Ottoman
Edirne from the mid-fourteenth to the mid-fifteenth century. By examining the physical
structures built in the course of the first century after the Ottoman conquest of the city the
article traces the formation of the Ottoman urban morphology, which replaced the inherited
Byzantine spatial order of urban tissue.
