  • Ali Qapu is a Safavid palace in Isfahan, Iran which was originally designed as a vast portal in the early 17th century and then it turned to a six-story palace with a series of additional architectural elements over a sixty year period to accommodate court functions. Building materials used for the structure of the Ali Qapu are mud and baked brick based on the foundation of the quarried stones. Vaulted ceilings of mud brick are richly decorated with painted, carved stucco and cutout Muqarnas in the sixth floor ‘music room’. As it can be seen cutouts on the surfaces of the Muqarnas in the shapes of ceramics and glassware have created delicate and fine surfaces which can also meet the acoustical characteristics of a complex and unique Helmholtz cavity absorber due to their various forms and disparate air volumes behind them.
