Selimiye Mosque, Edirne, Turkey, 1569 - 75. Considered by some to be one of the highest achievements of Islamic architecture, this mosque employs an octagonal supporting system that is created through eight pillars incised in a square shell of walls. The four semi domes at the corners of the square behind the arches, are intermediary sections between the huge encompassing dome and the walls. These pillars relate to the back walls through supporting arches that provide an ambulatory space.
