Muqarnas & Ribbed Dome

These two images are of an on-going residential project on Bedian Road in Lahore. The dome in the lower half of the first picture shows a first attempt at a 'ribbed' dome and a type of Muqarnas being developed by Kamil Sahib these days [covered in an earlier post ]. The dome in the upper half, finished recently, shows a much improved result. The second image at the bottom is of this more recent dome.

Photos by Raazia (final year student at NCA interning at the office these days) from a site visit of 13.5.2010.
