The lecture will commence with a brief overview of the History of Islamic Architecture, giving a brief account of the historical timeline and exemplary monuments. This will focus on various monuments from each century since the advent of Islam until the modern era, showing both the direction and trends within architecture.
Major monuments of Islamic architecture will be analyzed through exploring both the design principles and factors. Design principles include: unity, functionality, pursuit of knowledge, creativity, professionalism, identity and diversity. These specific principles differentiated Islamic architecture from other styles of architecture, giving it a unique character and identity. Design factors are considered during the design phase and include: the client, program, community concerns, codes and regulations, context and climate, site, building technology, sustainability, costs and schedule.
The seminar will also highlight the transformation of these principles and factors in light of the contemporary world and explore sustainability within Islamic architecture by analysing various different aspects taken into consideration in the design phase.
