Özet

The Garden of Sehzade Residences is located in Yildiz Technical University Yildiz (Besiktas) Campus situated at the northwestern part of Yildiz Palace. The garden was designed according to the slope of the site, and has authentic elements such as tree branch-shaped parapets, grotto ornaments with cascades, pavements adorned with various bordures, fountains and pools, stairs and pergolas, and a footbridge designed like tree branches. Despite the requirements related to new functions of the buildings surrounding the garden have resulted in modifications in the republican period, the latest form of the garden in Ottoman period is rather preserved as it is being located in the campus; however, the degree of deterioration in authentic architectural elements exposed to environmental factors has increased locally in areas of concentrated use.
