Masjid - Selected Mosques from the Islamic World
Compiled by architect Azim A. Aziz, this anthology of mosques is a valuable resource for architects and cultural historians alike. With profiles of more than 100 mosques, from celebrated ancient structures like the Dome of the Rock and the Hagia Sophia, or architectural paragons like the Taj Mahal and the Great Mosque of Djenné in Mali, to lesser known and modern interpretations of the typology, a spectrum of buildings of all scales is covered. Besides a glossary of names and terms, the volume touches upon the principles of Islamic architecture, geometric patterns and calligraphy, and regional styles, and gives a selected history of the various empires of the world as well.
