Architecture in Context: Designing in the Middle East provides a foundation for understanding the critical context of architecture and design in this region. It does this by:

presenting a practical overview of architectural know-how in the Middle East, and its potential for cultivating a sense of place
introducing local architectural vocabularies and styles, and how they can still be reactivated in contemporary design
exploring the cultural and contextual meaning of forms as references that may influence contemporary architecture
discussing important discourses and trends in architecture that allow a rethinking of the current global/local dichotomy.

Highly illustrated, the book covers architecture and design in North Africa, the Levant, the Gulf, and Turkey, Iran and Iraq.
