Description - Afghanistan: Preserving its Historic Heritage by Philip Jodidio
As Afghanistan recovers from decades of destruction, this book celebrates many of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture's projects to restore monuments and other sites to their former glory. For decades, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) has been working to revitalize the social, cultural, and economic strength of communities in the Muslim world through its Historic Cities Programme. This book documents more than 100 such efforts that have been carried out in Afghanistan since 2002. Each project is illustrated with specially commissioned photographs and detailed descriptions. A powerful testament to the AKTC's commitment to Islamic culture, this book documents the organization's ongoing work to celebrate, restore, and maintain Afghanistan's cultural presence in the modern world. AUTHOR: PHILIP JODIDIO has published numerous books on architecture and art, including The Museum of the Horse, The Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme, Heritage of the Mughal World, and Rafael Vinoly Architects (all by Prestel). 750 illustrations
