'The Opus Sectile Floor designs of the Mamluk period in Egypt'
Despite being a significant aesthetic element that enriches interior architecture, Opus Sectile pavements in the Mamlūk architecture (1250-1517 AD) in Egypt are rarely documented and studied and are usually hidden. In addition to the rarity, most of the published drawings are whether inaccurate, segmented or disregard different colours, materials or condition. This lecture presents a research project that aspires to document and study surviving Opus Sectile pavements in Mamlūk monuments in Egypt. Furthermore, it investigates possible links with the Byzantine floor arts.
The lectures will be held on Zoom:
