I am an architecture student in my final year preparing an architectural history paper analysing the floor plan of the house of worship in india, and the inherent differences in the experienceing of a place of worship with nine sides and nine entrances in contrast to the much more axial and oriented places of worship of other religions. I am looking for any leads on references pertaining to architecture in the Baha'i Faith, especially the plan and design of the Houses of Worship. Has a book ever been written on the topic? I have found references throughout the Writings, but just thought I would ask here!

thank you!
