TMR 36 ARCHITECTURE Roundtable Discussion
November 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Contributors to TMR’s present ARCHITECTURE issue, TMR 36, will discuss their essays with architect Rabi Georges moderating and writers Ammar Azzouz and Oorvi Sharma joining from the UK and Canada respectively on November 21st at 7pm CET/ 6pm UK/ 1pm EST.
From urban explosions and masterplanning to megaprojects and nation-branding, the November issue of The Markaz Review examines architecture, design and urbanism, with an emphasis on the countries represented on the SWANA map. Whether reinventing national traditions in order to brand regional and national identities, or attempting to build the biggest, tallest, most striking structure or shopping mall, contributors comment on a range of issues, including war, cities and sustainability. How do cities and regions come back after disasters such as the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Morocco, or the cataclysmic flooding in Libya? What about the upcoming COP28 in the UAE? Viewers can expect a lively discussion.
