Bringing Islamic Geometric Design to Hong Kong - an introduction

The talk aims to present, what has for the most part remained a mystery, namely the design methods used to achieve the sublime beauty of some of the best known and loved masterpieces of Mughal Architecture. One of these masterpieces, the Taj Mahal (1632-43AD) would be the focus of this presentation. The presentation would specially focus on methods of proportioning in Mughal Architecture achieved through the use of geometry.
