The Methodology of Geometric Order in the Design of Traditional Islamic Buildings - A Case Study of Madrasas in the Mamluk Eras in Egypt

Gaber, Ahmed Ali Ahmed

The research focuses on the relation between architecture design and geometry. The research started a process of geometric decoding for Mamluk madrasas beginning with demonstrating the geometric methodology of design, trying to blow away the dust from above the layer of geometry in Mamluk architecture. It ends with suggesting a geometric generative technique for madrasa building design and demonstrates a computer-aided generator program.
