Since the mid-19th century, the Middle East and North African region has been exposed to various global urban and architectural trends. The lecture explains how these trends have led to transformations in the design of homes in the MENA region, leaving behind its norms, traditional crafts, and identity unguarded. Dr. Gharib explores how these architectural values can be revived in current urban environments.
