Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

The city of Berati has a long urban history rooted deep down in ancient times. Different factors indicated the formation and the development of the city itself during his existence. Berati it is well known as a city which begins as a city of fortification and churches, but as the time goes by, the city in his architectural layers had saved with jealousy layered a fortune of the domestic architecture. Being part of the Ottoman Empire for almost five centuries, it is obviously that traces of the previous eras will be ‘covered’ with the Ottoman presence, evident especially in the vernacular architecture.

This article offers an insight into Ottoman era patterns appearing in the town of Berati as a marvelous example of the Ottoman era vernacular house in the Balkans.
