Today, one of the important topics, which are mentioned in architecture, is the relationship between architectural works with each other and way of effect of such works on them. On the other hand, under current conditions and despite existing trends which look for their own architecture, it is crucial important to interpret how contemporary architectural works are affected by previous architectural monuments. This necessitates for a method and tool for critique and analysis and revision of contemporary architecture in relation to such architectural works and establishment of a framework for dialogue in this regard. Accordingly, the current research aims to interpret the quality of relationship among architecture in public constructions of Uzbekistan and architectural monuments from Timurid era at this country by taking intertextual approach that will finally led to review of these works and their genealogy. Accordingly, the main research question is that how architectural monuments of Timurid era in Uzbekistan affect architecture of public constructions in this country? The qualitative methodology has been employed in this study by means of multiple measures, descriptive- analytic, historical- interpretative and comparative techniques and the given statistical population includes architectural public constructions in Uzbekistan during period (1960-1990). Also among statistical population, only those samples with intertextual aspect have been selected. Review of sample and data analysis show in this survey that all samples have dealt with conversation and intertextual communication with Timurid architectural tradition by trying to compose different layers of this process.
