Art history disccussion | Architecture and Design homework help

  

This week’s discussion will involve two crucial art historical skills: stylistic recognition and close visual analysis.

For your original thread, please select one mosque that is NOT pictured in any of our module materials.  Post an image of your mosque with information about its location, dates of construction, and any other information you think may be relevant.

For your thread responses, please REVIEW our weekly readings four and five.  Then, discuss the style of architecture and surface decoration of each mosque.  What makes each mosque identifiable as Islamic?  What are the highlights of its design? How might it reflect Islamic values?

Looking forward to seeing what you select!
