A valuable resource for design professionals and students alike, this handsome tome documents the most recent and forthcoming architectural developments in the Arabian Peninsula, an area that has become world-renowned for cutting-edge structures that are changing the face of architecture. More than 500 photographs spotlight projects designed by the world's foremost architects, designers, and engineers in the region of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and Yemen. In addition to photographs of recently completed structures, the book includes renderings, sections, and floor plans provided by architectural and design studios of buildings currently under construction. Supplementing the images, the text provides detailed technical descriptions of each of the buildings featured in the book. From the Al Shaqab Equestrian Academy in Qatar, with its state-of-the-art facilities, to the sustainable architecture of the British Embassy in Sana'a to the Arcapita Bank Headquarters on Bahrain Bay, accessible both by land and by water, this volume encompasses a vast array of projects--recreational, commercial, and residential--in a pivotal area of interest to architects.
