Dr. Mohammad Gharipour, Professor of Architecture, just published his ninth book, entitled “Gardens of Renaissance Europe and the Islamic Empires.” This edited book, which is published by Pennsylvania State University Press, is the first study on the role of gardens and landscapes in the broader context of the information sharing that took place among Europeans and Islamic empires in Turkey, Persia, and India during the 16th and 17th centuries. This book points to new areas in inquiry about the influences, confluences, and connections between European and Islamic garden traditions, while looking at the effects of cross-cultural exchange on garden design during a pivotal time in world history. In illustrating commonalities in the design, development, and people’s perceptions of gardens and nature in both regions, this volume substantiates important parallels in the revolutionary advancements in landscape architecture that took place during the era. This book received a publication award by the Foundation for Landscape Studies.
