In addition to the architectural design, detailing and good workmanship, the strength and durability of earth construction (that lasted for hundreds of years and some over a thousand years) depended on the glazed tile technology which was once a common building material in Afghanistan, Iran and other central Asian regions. This technology is a must to revive not only for its water resistant and long lasting characteristics, but also to celebrate the beauty of Islamic architecture.
