Lecture 17: Material, Ornament and Light Part 2 (narrated version)
Type
presentation slides

Architectural qualities, their evolution, and characteristics vary in the Islamic World and they are manifested differently across regions including high-end and regional examples. The impact of architectural qualities such as materiality, ornamentation, and light have shaped spatial perception and organisation in Islamic architecture. Looking at two mosques, from different contexts - the Arabian Peninsula and India, and comparing their historical background and architectural qualities, we can get a better understanding of the variety of Islamic architectural heritage.
