schema:description"The essays in this book represent an up to date research and investigation into the various aspects of heritage and sustainability in the Islamic Built environments with an analysis of the problems that these cities face, as they confront the forces of globalization and new development. The authors in the book aim to the need for knowledge and understanding of Islamic society which is crucial for comprehending their rich architectural heritage and urban form with their intended meanings and uses. The book embraces a wide array of principles, strategies and precedents that are instrumental to the design of cities and communities in Islamic regions in order to sustain their cultural and environmental vitality. The subject matter in this book will provide an important body of knowledge, not only to the design professionals and students of architecture and planning, but also includes useful information across disciplines, such as social sciences, planning, urban geography and more."@en
