Samer Akkach:  Cosmology and Architecture in Premodern Islam
Premodern literature on the Ka'ba provides ample references to the notion of centrality, axiality, triplicity, and quadrature; to its agency in the spatial deployment and temporal differentiation; and to its significance in materializing the creative relationship between triplicity and quadrature.  The rich and complex mythology of the Ka'ba shows how a built form can become an integral part of divine geography and a central element in a cosmic landscape.
