Abstract

Economic Development is closely linked to efficient social and physical infrastructure systems. This paper investigates the impact of this tandem interrelationship with an emphasis on the case study of Iraq. A review of nature of the Iraqi economy and existing conditions of selected infrastructure sectors indicates clear deficiencies. This deficiency constitutes an obstacle to sustainable economic development needed for a steady population growth. Overcoming deficits to infrastructure service levels require the implementation of a Public-Private partnership to catch up with needs and demand. One form of this partnership is the BOT contracts which can accelerate the delivery of services. Existing economic and business environment are not ideal for the local and foreign n investors to engage in such contracts, but impediments are diagnosed by concerned governmental entities which may reverse the infrastructure reality in Iraq.

Abstract

The research drives at determining the abstract dimension in the architecture forms of Islamic architecture in particular and in Islamic architecture in general, with the aim of reaching out to the unitary objective implied by them. The research hypothesis is that the architectural entities in Islam attempt at fulfilling a uniform architectural pattern regardless of the diversity of representations. Meanings are being embodied in various parts of the architectural whole work. While the research problem represented in the shortage of knowledge about abstraction strategies in architectural system and forms in Islamic city. Generally, Islamic architecture is an expression of the spiritual aspects of Islamic life and as such it has its own symbolic value. Following up this hypothesis, we come to the concision that every level of abstraction in Islamic architecture is a reflection and embodiment of a symbolic aspect related to Islam. Thus providing a proof for the validity of our hypothesis.
