"Invisible Infrastructures of Persian Bazaar"
at the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation
on April 13, 2011 at 6:15pm.
Persian Bazaars are one of the most significant and sophisticated types of islamic architecture. These amazing built environments, however, are also manifestations of Islamic Jurisprudence. Through a series of case studies representing over 12 years of research, Prof. Khamjani will discuss the inner infranstructures of Persian Bazaars and examine their causes of decay in the contemporary era. The discussion will also explore ways of revitalizing these important historical resources, which go beyond physical restoration and require an integrated social, cultural, and historical approach.
