Contemporary Architecture in the Arab States: Renaissance of a Region
Udo Kultermann's Contemporary Architecture in the Arab States couples case studies with over 100 never-before-seen illustrations to chronicle modern architectural developments in each Arab nation.

The book also explores the unlikely collaboration between large foreign architectural firms and their smaller, yet essential, Arab counterparts and highlights the cultural self-examination that occurs while redesigning ancient cities to coincide with modern needs.
