This documentary tours through the Muslim world, in search of that "atmosphere of Paradise," hidden away in mosques and palaces. In this film renowned art commentator Waldemar Januszczak makes an epic journey of discovery across the Muslim world, revealing awe-inspiring architecture and art objects that evoke the history of Islam.

Art and Architecture in the Islamic Tradition: Aesthetics, Politics and Desire in Early Islam (repost)

Mohammed Hamdouni Alami, "Art and Architecture in the Islamic Tradition: Aesthetics, Politics and Desire in Early Islam (Library of Modern Middle East Studies)"
English | ISBN 10: 1848855443 | 2010 | PDF | 304 pages | 3.1 MB

What is "art" in the sense of the Islamic tradition? Mohammed Hamdouni Alami argues that Islamic art has historically been excluded from Western notions of art; that the Western aesthetic tradition's preoccupation with the human body has meant that Islamic and Western art being perceived as inherently at odds. However, the move away from this "anthropomorphic aesthetic" in Western art movements, such as modern abstract and constructivist painting, have presented the opportunity for new ways of viewing and evaluating Islamic art and architecture.

Architecture in Continuity: Building in the Islamic World Today

Sherban Cantacuzino, "Architecture in Continuity: Building in the Islamic World Today"
Aperture | November 1, 1985 | English | ISBN: 0893811874 | 192 pages | PDF | 100 Mb

Architecture in Continuity celebrates recent projects throughout the Islamic world that most successfully preserve indigenous forms while providing for the future. It honors the insight, imagination, and skill that brought these projects into physical reality. The Aga Khan Awards Foundation's attention to the extraordinary effort required to develop an architecture both practical and spiritual is dramatically reflected in this volume, the second of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture series. In the words of the Foundation, the architects represented here provide environments in which people can "live, work, and practice the precepts of … faith harmoniously and to the fullest."

Of all the major architectural prizes, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture is perhaps the only one that, in addition to celebrating the finest fruit that embellishes the tree of Architecture┬╗ encourages the roots that nurture the plant. These dual concerns place the Award in a truly unique position; for in order to make its selections, the Award must of necessity be concerned not only with product but also with process and the issues that generate that process. Thus, since its inception almost twenty-five years ago, the Aga Khan Award has been an extraordinarily inventive and courageous enterprise, seeking always to understand the fundamental issues of the societies it addresses and to identify those subtle but pivotal watersheds that shift our perspective and open up a world of new possibilities.

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.
