Starving for Perfection

Iran

2013

 

Iranian architecture displays great variety, both structural and aesthetic, developing gradually and coherently out of prior traditions and experience. Without sudden innovations, and despite the repeated trauma and cultural shocks, it has achieved “an individuality distinct from that of other Muslim countries”. There is: “a marked feeling for form and scale; structural inventiveness, especially in vault and dome construction; decoration and art form with a freedom and success not rivaled in any other architecture”.
