Visitors Night: Building Faith

Katharine Bartsch

Held at: Middle Eastern Cultural House, 126 Henley Beach Rd, Torrensville. Istanbul, Seville, Jerusalem, Delhi… each city conjures a host of images at once exotic, enchanting and mysterious. This richly illustrated presentation explored such cities in relation to the emergence and diffusion of Islam. The emphasis is on architecture. Katherine argued that Islamic architecture is shaped by both an intriguing Muslim heritage and rich cross-cultural encounters.
