Akbari architecture is also remarkable for its large scale use of sandstone, evident both in the construction of Fatehpur Sikri, Akbar’s royal city, and Akbar’s own tomb in Sikandra.

      While architecture of the Achaemenid Empire features post-and-beam (column-supported) construction, the Sassanid Empire preferred arched (arch-supported) construction, which was adopted from the Romans. The most famous Sassanid ruin is the palace at Ctesiphon, Iraq (capital of the Second Persian Empire).Roman influence is evident in wall compositions of engaged columns and blind arches. 5. A Brief History of Persian Architecture and Art. The Persian empire was vast, and one of the lasting legacies of the empire, aside from their fierce battles and dominance in the known world, was their influence on architecture and art as a whole. An old empire, Persia’s architecture has gone through several transitions: BC – BC.

      Investigates the interaction between word and image in medieval Persian art. Focusing on 5 objects found in the main media at the time - ceramics, metalwares, painting, architecture and textiles - Sheila S. Blair shows how artisans played with form, material and decoration to engage their audiences. Her earlier publications include The Safavid Dynastic Shrine: History, religion and architecture in early modern Iran (British Institute for Persian Studies, I. B. Tauris, ) and the anthology, Modernism and the Middle East: Architecture and politics in the twentieth century (University of Washington Press, ), which was awarded a Graham.
