About the Journal

The International Journal of Islamic Architecture is an international, peer-reviewed publication that is intended for those interested in urban design and planning, 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. The main emphasis is on detailed analysis of the practical, historical and theoretical aspects of architecture, with a focus on both design and its reception. The journal is also specifically interested in contemporary architecture and urban design in relation to social and cultural history, geography, politics, aesthetics, technology, and conservation. Spanning across cultures and disciplines, IJIA seeks to analyze and explain issues related to the built environment throughout the regions covered. The cross-cultural and interdisciplinary nature of this journal will significantly contribute to the knowledge in this field.

The journal has an exceptional editorial team including Director and Founding Editor Mohammad Gharipour, Associate Editor Deeba Haider, Reviews Editor Nancy Um, Assistant Editors Marika Snider and Kivanc Kilinc and Academic Editor Hasan-Uddin Khan, who provides the editorial for issue 1.1. Before he began teaching, Khan was Director of Special Projects at the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, Geneva, with responsibility for international initiatives and he brings a wealth of experience to the issue. Through his editorial Khan describes how exploring and searching for expressions of contemporary architectural and artistic production to establish a new paradigm for the twenty-first century is a central task for this publication and he lays out  some of the definitions and issues involved in establishing new directions for the discourse. The first issue includes articles on both 'design in theory' and 'design in practice', in addition to both a book and exhibition reviews section and a conference precis. Articles include 'Head Trips: An Intertextual Analysis of Later Architecture and Sculpture Under Saddam Hussein' and 'Msheireb Heart of Doha: An Alternative Approach to Urbanism in the Gulf Region'.
