The New Arab City - Volume 1: The Gulf, is an expression of PLP Architecture’s own ideas about the future development of urbanism in the region, and how technological development can have a bold influence on interaction, movement, culture, learning, the workplace and living in the New Arab City by editor, Karl Sharro
Arab cities today face serious challenges, but they also have huge potential. PLP Architecture have been working on a piece of research, leading to the first in a series of publications, The New Arab City - Volume 1: The Gulf. The New Arab City is an expression of personal ideas about the future development of urbanism in the region with an interest in how technological development can have a bold influence on interaction, movement, culture, learning, the workplace and living in The New Arab City. The presentation will be illustrated with drawings and visualisations.
About PLP Architecture
PLP Architecture is a London-based group of architects, designers and thinkers who value the transformative role of ideas and the capacity for architecture to inspire. Although we draw from a rich history and experience of working together on projects around the world, we have a culture of a young start-up. We value innovation and creativity as we strive to test limits. We produce intelligent, exciting and groundbreaking designs through a continual commitment to social, economic and environmental ideas. The office shuns preconceptions, ficed architectural styles or methods, allowing each project to become a unique opportunity to research, analyse and creatively respond to the brief, site and context. The foundation of our work lies in a commitment to the quality of life in the city, a delight in the handling of material, space and light and an optimism about architecture’s potential to enrich our society.
This event is a part of the Official Dubai Design Week Programme and is free to attend.
