I love the amazing intricacies of form and color in Islamic architecture.  These images in particular have me mesmerised.

Muqarnas, the Arabic word for stalactite vault, is an architectural ornament developed around the middle of the tenth century in north eastern Iran and almost simultaneously, but apparently independently, in central North Africa. 
These images and many more that I could not fit here via...I'm Revolting, Muqarnas and Mocarabe, Islamic Architecture
