Architecture as Symbol and Self-Identity by Jonathan G. Katz
English | October 9-12, 1979 | ISBN: N/A | PDF | 117 Pages | 8 MB
The task of the architect is to create a physical environment readily identifiable by a society as its own. Building within contemporary societies sets before the professional the challenge of identifying, understanding and creating forms and spaces which are at once new and familiar, which convey a sense of specific identity and which are non-alienating. To do so within the Islamic world today is very difficult indeed.
