Western Islamic architecture: a concise introduction

Front Cover
Dover Publications, Feb 11, 2005 - Architecture - 128 pages
Profusely illustrated critical appraisal vividly describes the glories of world architecture, from Spain and Egypt to other areas of the Middle East. Captioned drawings, maps, and photographs contrast, for example, the internal ornamentation of Spain's Alhambra with the austerity of Egypt's Mosque of Ibn Tulun, comparing both to the Ottoman mosques built in Turkey.
