Architectural influences between eras are many fold. Byzantine influences are obvious from the Byzantine era, although very little remains from it.

Dolmabahce Palace is an epitome to that.
Modern architecture emphasizes western influences more and more. Aesthetic looking residences, hotels, shopping malls such as Kanyon are among some of the new landscape. The list below will try to highlight important landmarks from all eras.
