Research map


The map shows our research on Islamic gardens, courtyards and watersystems. The 7 topics of pairidaeza - Perimeter, Choreography, Metaphor, Vegetation, Threshold, Water and Topography are being studied. Pairi-daeza is Farsi for 'a wall enclosing a garden'. The research, put up on a wall at the beginning of a project becomes more and more dense during the development of the project. Eventually the map records the research and acts as inspiration. The map is then also part of the final submission.
