Hey guys, I'm writing a paper comparing and contrasting Golden Age (1300-1700) Islamic Architecture in Eastern Africa and Southeast Asia. I am doing my own research, of course, but I want the community's thoughts, to ensure I didn't miss anything. Anyone know some good examples or points? I'll find evidence or a source myself, just looking for some ideas. Thanks.
Certainly look at Stone Town in Zanzibar, Lamu, Kenya and Kilwa, which are all coastal cities. The architecture of these cities was influenced by Arab and Indian traders and craftsmen. One of the best examples is the Old Dispensary building in Zanzibar, for which, plenty of documentation exists in the Archnet digital library.
