Drought and Maglova Aqueduct, Istanbul-Turkey

The Maglova Aqueduct built by Mimar Sinan is 260 m long and 36 m high, decked with two-storeyed arches. It also functioned as a pedestrian bridge, thanks to a passage running through the piers of the arches. Sinan managed to blend the bearing and functional elements into a work of art. The first aqueduct was destroyed by violent floods (1563) so Sinan obviously went to greater lenghts in his second attempt. Built : 1554-1562 Location : Near Istanbul, Istanbul, Turkey Crosses : Alibey River Structural Type : Arch bridge Designer : Mimar Koca Sinan ibn Abd al-Mannan.
