Istanbul Araştırmaları Enstitüsü
An outgrowth of the Pera Museum, the Istanbul Research Institute is an academic organization supporting historical and cultural inquiry into the city’s Byzantine, Ottoman, and Republican periods. As Istanbul negotiates its emergence as a megalopolis, the institute seeks to better understand its rapidly changing present by examining the past. Established in 2005, the organization hopes to realize this objective by holding conferences and events as well as supporting research. Its Tepebaşı location contains a research library, academic support services, and a gallery.
The library houses the "Atatürk and the Republic" and "Old Istanbul" photography archives, as well as old engraved maps, insurance maps by Jacques Pervititich and Suat Nervin, as well as a large collection of volumes on Istanbul's history and architecture.
Coming from Taksim Square along İstiklal Caddesi, turn right onto Meşrutiyet Caddesi opposite Galatasaray High School. The research institute is on the left-hand side of Meşrutiyet Caddesi, near the Pera Museum.
