Friday Seminar 11th November

Tarih: 11/11/2016
The impact of the socio-cultural behaviour and traditions on the built environment is undeniable. Some of these impacts are unconscious and instinctive whereas some are direct and didactic, speaking by a more or less perfect realisation, or through a code of symbols, accompanied by traditions which explained them. This presentation aims to show the importance of frankincense and incense burning for Dhofar region, Oman and how this culture of incense burning dictates the buildings’ features of its modern architecture by mimicking the ornament of local incenseburner, mijmara, where the building represents the artefact and the myth of incense burning culture.
