Abstract

Persian master builders had been innovated an architectural form which had an imperishable effect on the world architecture: surmounting a dome on squinches. This paper analyzes the distinct types of Persian domes that widely appeared since the beginning through into the late Islamic in Iran. It starts with a historical study of the Persian dome origin, types, and evolutions. By analytic reviewing examples of such domes, then the paper suggests their formal constitutions and stylistic attributes. Finally, and based on the above, the morphological and typological forms of Persian domes have been presented and decoded. Analytical analysis of Persian domical buildings is a preference implement to discern deep knowledge of traditional Persian architect-artisans in their work and to develop the modern theories of Islamic dome constitutions for setting new design criteria.
