0006 Khayyam Told Me Marmore
There are different types of gardens; each one is influenced by time, place, and science. Garden design was inspired by the scientific results of a particular age. It transforms the practical need of people into beautiful edifice and provides users with comfort and convenience. Gardens are characterized by the deep thinking of geometry and beauty, as in Andalusia, Istanbul, Iran, Afghanistan, and Italy.
Besides simplicity, shapes in geometric gardens have unity and diversity. These foundations can achieve harmony. In Persian rugs you find traces of this harmony.
