Unlike in Western Europe and North America, where modernity was the result of a process of social, cultural and artistic evolution spanning many centuries, it took on the character of a national project in Turkey. This project was contradictory in itself, because the young republic pursued two objectives that were difficult to reconcile: bringing Turkey closer to the West and at the same time differentiating it from it. The publication analyses various aspects of this project using the example of a single actor of that time - the Swiss-Austrian architect Ernst Egli (1893–1974).
