Is the pointed Gothic arch truly a Gothic, European invention? How come Islamic patterns adorn the Central Synagogue of New York City? Are the signature domes of Istanbul’s famous mosques truly Islamic in origin? These and other questions will yield unexpected answers, as we explore the architectural influences flowing between the Islamic and the western worlds since the 9th century, from Spain to India, medieval to modern, and beyond. Powerful masterpieces of architecture will highlight the various sensibilities of our shared human experience.
