Book Description Mage Publishers, 1993. Rilegato. Condition: nuovo. Brand New. Mint Copies. With Minouch Yavari. In the West the word bazaar, (which comes from the Persian) has changed its meaning from a place where a variety of articles can be found to a place of disorder. In truth, the traditional Persian bazaar was a highly organizaed commercial and financial center of the city. Linked to the mosque, the seminary (madreseh), the religious club (hoseyniyyeh), the caravansary, and the bathhouse (hammam), it was both the spiritual and the cultural heart of the Iranian town. To the casual visitor this organization was not always apparent. This book uses sixty full-color photographs, 80 duotones and twenty maps and drawings, as well as texts from the different perspectives of an art historian, an urban architect, and a professor of environmental planning to convery not only the design and remarkable architecture of the bazaar, but also the exoticism that stikes the senses. This journey through the traditional Persian bazaar will fascinate the layman and scholar alike. The reader will not only experience the colorful festival of life and architecture that is the bazaar, but will also gain a deeper understanding of the intricate workings and underlying cultural and spiritual structures of the traditional bazaar-an archetypal organizing principle of bazaars from Istanbul to Samarkand., Ill. bn: --, Ill. colori: full colour and b/w throughout, Peso: 945 gr.
