On this first week we read in the “Introduction” (pages 8-11) to the Metropolitan’s guide to Islamic arts how geometry, distances, and calculations in space and designs contribute to the branding of a type of architecture. To understand and read competently the ways in which sacredness and architecture correspond with each other, we read Lang’s essay on sacredness and architecture as a point of departure to guide us both in the second kickoff of the course and in our beginning the semester.
In your reflections, you considered a piece of Lang’s argument, and gauged how visual evidence found by you supported, or not, that part of his argument on “Sacredness and Architecture.”
Please, POST here your reflection for this week. You do not have to rewrite any part of this, ONLY add the names of the two partners contributing to this reflection, so everyone knows the parties involved in the post. Thank you.
