By the time the nearby Gunbad-i Kabud was built ( 1196–7 ), the use of color had increased to such an extent that the tomb is virtually enveloped by a web of blue glazed tile. Bannā῾ī (“builder's [technique]”) was an easy and effective way of decorating large surfaces (see §X, B, 2 below).

...an architect's client may not be limited to seeing a few perspective renderings of a project from predetermined viewpoints, but may employ interactive viewing software to “walk” through it at will.
