I was a young architecture student when Bernard Rudofsky's "Architecture Without Architects" exhibit and book appeared. Like Marco Polo recounting his fantastic tales, the book presented unimaginable architecture in remote corners of the world. One such was Cappadocia. There are some places on earth where landscape and habitation come together in spectacular ways. Cappadocia's carvable tufa cones have provided an ideal habitat for millenia and became, in particular, Christian refuges during both Roman and Muslim Eras.
