Contemporary vocabulary for Islamic architecture
I am doing my B. Arch thesis on "Islamic architecture, its planning techniques, sustainable issues and its implementation in Aga Khan Academy, Dhaka"
I will try to achieve
- A contemporary vocabulary of Islamic architecture which can be treated as a model for the future course of architecture in the Islamic regions.
- the common thread of Islamic Architecture cutting through various regions and cultures.
Comments and helps are sought

One of the main focus of the project is to use modern techniques and to merge it with the local sustainable designs but keeping the value of Islamic architecture. One of the case study I have in mind is Faisal Mosque of Islamabad. What else can be possible case studies?
