From the jacket--The architecture of Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey varies widely due to the differing climate, available builing materials, and artistic tradition of each region. Yet the common architectural heritage of these lands is a rich one--particularly in its structural statements, inventive designs, appreciation of relief and texture, and feeling for proportion and color. Perhaps an understanding of this heritage by Western architects and designers may indeed help to "awaken new images."
