This paper analyzes the type of muqarnas (muqamas-corbel) that appeared under some gadrooned domes during the fourteenth and the fifteenth centuries in Egypt and Central Asia. It starts with a study of the gadrooned dome type, its proper terminology, origin, evolution, and sub-types. Then, the paper defines the muqarnas-corbel under gadroons, presents the buildings where it appeared, suggests its formal origins, draws an evolution map, and concludes its regional stylistic attributes. Finally… 

Reconnoitring computational potentials of the vault-like forms: Thinking aloud on muqarnas tectonics

It is argued that encoding vault-like systems via geometric and algorithmic relations based on the logic of the ‘fold’ provides informative and intuitive feedback for form-finding, specifically in the earlier phases of design.

Computational Modeling and Analysis of Seljukid Muqarnas in Kayseri

The computational analysis shows that Seljukid muqarnas exhibit patterned branching of the symmetry axis between layers radiating from their geometric center, which analyzes inherent symmetry rules and growth patterns while offering a novel way of studying, modeling, and categorizing muquarnas.

Parametric Iranian-Islamic muqarnas as drivers for design for fabrication and assembly via UAVs: parametric analysis and synthesis of Iranian-Islamic muqarnas

This synthetic translation aims at expanding the understanding of parametric analysis and synthesis of traditional architecture, advancing the understanding towards using parametric synthesis towards UAV-based fabrication of Muqarnas, by taking advantage of their inherent repetition and recursion.

A generative design case study for UAV-based assembly and fabrication: parametric analysis and synthesis of Iranian-Islamic Muqarnas

This synthetic translation aims at expanding the understanding of parametric analysis and synthesis of traditional architecture, advancing the understanding towards using parametric synthesis, with the scope to fabricate and assemble modules towards UAV-based fabrication of Muqarnas.
