The International Journal of Islamic Architecture seeks to provide a forum without religious, cultural or national bias for debate and discussion surrounding architecture and landscape design in the historic Islamic world, encompassing the Middle East and parts of Africa and Asia, but also the more recent geographies of Islam in its global dimensions. IJIA's articles address not only architecture and design but art, history, archaeology, anthropology, culture, spirituality, religion and economics as well. These articles are split into two categories, Design in Theory and Design in Practice, to allow for both critical and analytical analyses of architecture, whilst the rich review section allows the reader to stay ahead of scholarly developments in the field.
This second issue welcomes a wealth of interdisciplinary approaches, from Hasan-Uddin Khan's editorial on the effects of globalization on the contemporary Islamic city, to Kerry Rutz's exploration of the environmental cost of development in Dubai and Sam Woodbridge's notes on the restoration of the Great Serai in Kabul. It is through such diverse methodologies that the journal hopes to promote an appreciation for the spaces, monuments and challenges of Islamic Architecture.
