Architecture as Symbol and Self-Identity

Architecture as Symbol and Self-Identity

English | October 9-12, 1979 | ISBN: N/A | PDF | 117 Pages | 8 MB

The task of the architect is to create a physical environment readily identifiable by a society as its own. Building within contemporary societies sets before the professional the challenge of identifying, understanding and creating forms and spaces which are at once new and familiar, which convey a sense of specific identity and which are non-alienating. To do so within the Islamic world today is very difficult indeed. On the one hand, there is little in the realm of architectural theory, history and criticism dealing with Islamic environments and monuments which might provide guiding principles and insight. On the other, the discontinuities and disruptions of modernization within Islamic societies make the ready application of whatever principles of space and form that one may extract a problem.
