This is the first book ever to examine the architecture and urbanism of the Persian Gulf as a complete entity, dealing equally with conditions on the eastern Iranian shoreline as in Arabic countries on the western side. By inviting a range of architects and scholars to write about historical and contemporary influences on 14 cities along both Gulf coastlines, the book traces the changes in architecture and human settlement in relation to environmental factors and particularity of place. It provides an innovative contribution to the study of architecture and globalisation through a detailed investigation of this particular region, investigating how buildings and cities are being shaped as a result.http://www.dsc.gov.ae/Reports/DSC_LFS_2009_02_05.pdf (accessed 15 September 2011). 4 Gero ... in Elisabeth Blumaamp; Peter Neitzke (eds), Dubai:Stadt aus dem Nichts (Basel: Birkhauser, 2009), pp. ... 23Kevin Mitchell, a#39;From theintimateto theiconic: Architecture in Dubaifrom 1967 to 1997a#39;, in George Katodrytis (ed.)anbsp;...
