Summary
  • "In the 1960s, oil was discovered in the Middle East, and the economic and cultural impact of that discovery has caused a building boom unparalleled elsewhere in the world at any time in history. The vitality of the region is evidenced by an architectural style that, unlimited by monetary constraints, is opulent, and yet somehow manages to handle the extremes of climate and tradition successfully."--Jacket
  • "Coupling case studies with over 100 never before-seen illustrations, this volume chronicles modern architectural developments in the nations of Egypt, Iraq, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Yemen, and Sudan. All types of buildings are discussed - from government offices and public spaces, to houses of education and religion. The featured examples include designs for both commercial and private client."--Jacket
