Type

Year
1999
A large number of random studies on traditional Islamic cities have been published over the past two decades. This paper suggests 15 studies which need to be thoroughly researched and published to add to our current knowledge base on this subject. Once material is available, it would be feasible to construct a comprehensive theory of urban form in traditional Islamic cities, which currently does not exist.
