Legacies for the Future: Contemporary Architecture in Islamic Societies
Thames & Hudson | 1998 | ISBN: 0500280878 | English | 177 Pages | 104MB | PDF
In the rapidly changing tastes and styles of Western culture, the most highly acclaimed designs in contemporary architecture are often unconnected to the social and cultural contexts from which they spring. In contrast, in Islamic societies around the world, architecture often plays a far more responsible role, responding to the immediate needs of local and personal exigencies. As a result, some of the most humanist contemporary architecture is overlooked by the fashions of today's international design periodicals.
