Note that DOME is not a product of Islamic civilization.

it's originated from ROME (Roman Empire) and Eastern Roman (Byzantine).

So, Turkey deserve that dome with pendentive system as it was born there!



Pendentive system in dome invention by the byzantium.

Of course, I meant the same thing, an ancient Persian building, hundreds years before Islam:

I do not condemn anything. If somebody say : "This is Christian architecture" then I would say the same thing that there is nothing like "Christian" architecture.

I think Cyrus thinks this is a rhetorical question, so I'm not sure why he's even bothering to ask people if he thinks he knows the answer. Unless this is just a thinly veiled pretext to convey obvious contemptuous sentiments. Against whom does he harbor this contempt? I can only take a wild guess LOL.

Cyrus, do you propose we change the name from Islamic architecture to Persian architecture because some regions of the Abbassid Empire (mainly Iran and modern-day Iraq) had Sassanian influences? Should we change the name of Roman, Baroque and Renaissance architecture to Greek architecture? Because, you know, they borrowed a lot more from Greece than "Islamic" architecture did from the Sassanians. Actually the Greeks borrowed from even earlier civilizations and developed their own unique architecture. This sort of thing happens everywhere, but nobody makes a big deal out of it. Only when it comes to Islamic architecture do people like you start saying preposterous things like (I'm paraphrasing here) "Islamic architecture doesn't exist...everything is Persian" or some other moron says "the Taj Mahal is Italian and Hindu". Ridiculous.

If you have a problem with the nomenclature, then give us an alternative (please don't say Persian, because you're gonna put your foot in your mouth). But obviously you don't give a shit about that because by posting this thread you think you're doing some sort of "service" to Persian culture.

pietra dura is a term for the technique of using cut and fitted, highly-polished colored stones to create images. It is considered a decorative art..its a technique bro..not architecture style..the motif of tajmahal is still islamic motif with geometri and flower patern,its only using a technique from rome..i think u still dont no the diffrent between architecture style and decorative..

^That is Persian tile decoration, which develop before Islamic era. True that Islam forbid images so use a lot of floral decoration, but it borrow the technique from Persia.

Islamic Art is necessarily defined as the art of the Moslem Empires and Civilizations that were a direct response to the inspiration of the Islamic religion.

A similar statement can be made about Christian Art. For example, the Christian Nestorian Art in China has very little in common stylistically with the Christian Art of Europe, or the Christian art of Egypt. But thematically and iconographically, they have similarities, naturally. They all come under the general terminology of "Christian Art". "Christian Art" does not mean having one style or one aesthetic/architectural school of thought.

Like Christian Art, Islamic Art is heterogeneous.

Still, one can identify key/major influences in what is called Classical Islamic Art. They are:

* The Art of Greater Persia (from Sassanian to the Caliphate to Savafid, and beyond).
* The Timurid and Turkic Central Asian Flowering.
* Islamic Art of the Greater Mediterranean (this includes the Islamic response to the Greco-Roman, Byzantine and Egyptian and North African aesthetic.)

These are what constitute the heartland of Classical Islamic Art.

I think the mosques represent the true Islamic architecture, which usually consist of domes and minarets
