In the XVI century the Mediterranean area was characterized bytwo contrasting imperial realities: on the one hand, the OttomanEmpire dominated the territories rom the south o the Balkanregion all the way to southern Spain; on the other hand, theEuropean monarchies were competing or the conquest o thenorthern territories. These two dierent socio-political identitiesgave rise to many priceless architectural works in which we 65 can identiy elements o continuity, signicant dierences, andreciprocal inuences.Important examples to be studied or this type o comparisoninclude:Mimar Sinan, chie architect o the Ottoman Empire: over aperiod o ty years he was able to construct many buildings,including around one hundred mosques based on a central domestructure.Philibert de l‘Orme in service to Henri II: his masterpiece o the Châteu d’Anet or Diane de Poitiers was designed on the basiso sterotomic stone vaults central the to the nascent “art du trait”tradition.Vandelvira: under the Spanish Empire o Phillip II he openedthe door to the construction o Escorial whose structure was richin architectural solutions through a skilul use o stereotomicstone building techniques.The work o each o these three architects has great value whenstudied alone, but acquires much more importance whencompared together. It is particularly interesting to identiy thestylistic inuences in these artistic productions, to compare thebuilding techniques and the technical inventions, as well as othersimilarities in the overall architectural solutions. The numerouscommon items – technical and aesthetic – are emblematic o ahigh mobility at that time.
