Buildings embody people and ideas: what if this common metaphor were more than a rhetorical device? Dr. Sara Keller discusses the thesis that architecture can be intentionally designed to create a resonance between a built space and a living being.
In her new publication, Dr. Sara Keller has analysed the Indian mausoleum of the Sufi master Shāh Vajihudin (16th century). The study shows that the building was planned as an image of Shāh Vajihudin's identity and thus perceived as the Sufi scholar's stone incarnation.
