Arg-e Bam: George Steinmetz

The last (and only) aerial photos taken of the citadel of Bam (Iran), three weeks before it was destroyed in a catastrophic earthquake on 26 Decenmber 2003. “Prior to the earthquake, the fortress had possessed the distinction of being the largest adobe building in the world, recognized for its unbaked mud brick (khesht) and poured mud wall (chineh) construction.” After the earth quake the Arg-e Bam was inscribed on the 2004 World Heritage List, and added directly to the World Heritage in Danger List. - dome.mit
