Mashrabiya drawings
Hello, can somebody tell me where can I find drawings of masharrabiya? How a simple geometric form can become a complex one through only rotation? Different examples of drawings to see and compare? thank you

Mashrabiya drawings
Hi,
You can find some drawings in Hassan Fathi's books about Mashrabiyya and traditional architecture in Cairo. However, such geometric forms can be found in any books of Islamic ormanentaions and wooden works in particular.
I advice you to analyse some of the mashrabiyat photos to find out the relationships btween these forms, as I did a master in similar kinds of mashrabiyyat in Saudi Arabia, which I believe that they called "roshan".
Good luck,
Farida
