Abstract Share this page

The social nature of architectural design covers behavioural and societal concepts relative to the Persian garden and structure. It is important to have an understanding of how society influences design in order to be able to view the inherent influences in the design solution for the ancient Persians the symbol of eternal life was a tree with a stream at its roots. The sacred miracle tree contained the seeds of all within itself. Tree planting was a sacred occupation and this reverence was deeply seated in the souls of the Persians. Historical accounts tell us about gardens named Paradise filled with all things fair and good that the earth can bring forth. Sense of privacy and Social interaction which are perceived to have a relation in the theories of architecture and garden design were well respected in traditional garden design in Iran. Persian gardens influenced garden design around the world and became the foundation of Islamic and later European garden traditions, an example of which can be seen in the Mughal gardens of India. This conservatism led artists to attach religious meaning or symbolism to their works. Forms, shapes, objects, scenes and even letters and numbers of Islamic art are symbolic. All art has hidden significance. This article was published in Malaysia Handbook on the Emerging Trends in Scientific Research and referenced in Journal of Steel Structures & Construction
