Architecture of the TerritoryConstructing National Narratives in the Arab World examines the role of national narratives in defining the Arab world through the use of architecture and urbanism, with some thirty essays by contributors from each region.

This territory, almost twice the size of the United States and home to 423,000,000 inhabitants, lacks sufficient and accessible research. In order to advance knowledge and critical thinking, this publication uncovers some of the mechanisms and narratives that have shaped the territory and its society. The selected essays, written by researchers and professionals, are the beginning of a dialogue, touching on themes such as agricultural strategies, imported housing typologies, the issues inherited from colonial borders, and the effect of politics on infrastructure projects and cultural heritage. While these critical contributions draw on local histories and context, they also run in parallel and contribute to the discourse on current global issues.
