9780199067848: Balochistan: Architecture, Craft, and Religious Symbolism

This research work explores the living tradition of Baluchistan and provides a deeper understanding of its religo-cultural aspects. The architectural and artistic traditions are well-documented in this book. The material presented on prayer rugs, tents, and aspects of the nomadic and semi-nomadic architecture is wholly original. The research first focuses on the social environment of Baluchistan, in order to understand the input of local culture and tribo-religious influences of local architecture. The Baluchi lifestyle is analysed on a broad plane, taking into account native architecture including mosques and symbolic minarets as key factors, together with their design, characteristics, social contextualisation and methods of production.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, Pakistan, 2015. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. This work explores the living traditions of Balochistan and provides a deeper understanding of the province's religio-cultural, architectural, textile, and symbolic traditions which are explored in depth. The architectural and artistic traditions of the myriad Baloch groups are documented. The fieldwork and data collection is theoretically contextualized and draws upon a combination of reference points from Islamic architecture as well as anthropology. Selected architectural forms of houses and mosques, and the design of their constituent elements, most notably minarets, are analysed to explain their practical functions and symbolic meaning.The Baloch lifestyle is examined on a broad plane, with particular focus on indigenous architecture and its characteristics, social contextualization, and methods of construction.
