A LECTURE PRESENTED BY DR. FATEMA AL SULAITI DETAILING THE CONTEXT AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH ISLAMIC ART SHAPED
Supported and developed everyday communal/societal/community functions and traditions
Lecture- Poster
Bahrain, Manama - Islamic art is synonymous with sacred art. It is an art which transmits a Divine message and transcends time and place. It draws its roots from the Spirit and manifests itself in our physical world.
Islam is not only a major monotheistic religion professed by one-sixth of the human race, it is also an active historical force that produced a multitude of cultures and empires with a distinct civilizational flavor that permeated even the most mundane functions in every Islamic society.

The lecture will discuss the role of Islamic civil architecture demonstrated within these societal functions: palatial, commercial, military, industrial, residential and landscape architecture. We will use the chronological review format to examine distinctive types of civil Islamic architecture from the merging of the first Islamic architecture to the analyzing of the different factors that shaped their particular contexts. We will assess the formation and developments of architectural traditions, their regional transformations, and the various external and interregional influences that affected them at different historical intersections.
