Quinn Residence, courtyard
The proportions and ornamentation of this courtyard evoke the tradition of using geometry to impart serenity and order to the environment as well as protection from the desert environment. An inner oasis, the patterns and stone details have deliberate meanings, for example the zig zag pattern surrounding the courtyard floor suggests water whereas the "hamsa" or 8 pointed star symbol in the frieze above the arches is symbolic of the sun.
