Type
abstract
Year
2021
This essay addresses the epistemic assumptions undergirding the constitution of Islamic architecture as a scholarly field of study. Critiquing the binary of rupture versus continuity and discovery as knowledge-controlling tools, the essay calls for reorienting the conceptual contours of the study of architecture in general towards inter-cultural, as well as intra-cultural, inquiry.
