What can we learn from 1,400 years of excellence in Islamic geometric design? What rules and conventions have guaranteed consistent quality for centuries across the Islamic world?
Eric Broug looks at a wide range of visual evidence and codifies these rules: he reveals the design practices of traditional builders: how to scale a composition, how to create an engaging composition, how to innovate etc.
This book shows how compositions were applied over the centuries, it shows how to apply best practice now, and it shows the most common problems in contemporary Islamic geometric design, and how to avoid them.
Essential reading for architects, designers and students.
