Much of a people's heritage and culture is contained in a city with its urban structure, buildings, architecture & ornamental elements and building materials. As cities in the Islamic world develop & modernize, much of these layers are lost.  

Join us in re-visiting the Islamic city and understand how a culture was translated into built form
