ARTH 62.71 Islamic Architecture

This course examines the architecture of Islamic cultures from the seventh-century rise of the Umayyad dynasty to the modern centers of Dubai and Doha. By studying the historical contexts within which Islamic architecture developed, we will consider major themes, chronological developments and regional variations in both religious and secular architecture. Additionally, by examining instances of cross-cultural influence, we will explore pivotal interactions between Islamic and non-Islamic architectural traditions.
