Description - Islamic Architecture by Henri Stierlin

Since its establishment in the seventh century, Islam has inspired glorious architecture, from magnificent domes and hypostyle halls to towering minarets, spectacular muqarnas ceilings and dazzling tiled decorations. Here, architectural historian Henri Stierlin explains the thousand and one forms of Islamic buildings by underlining the constants and the infinite variations of an artform whose energy and monumental vision have lasted over a millennium.
