Abstract

In their roles as both receivers and exporters of contemporary urban trends, cities like Dubai, Doha, and Abu Dhabi are enmeshed in shaping places beyond their own region. With pictorial documentation from the accomplished architectural photographer Michele Nastasi, the exhibition "Learning from Gulf Cities" challenges any tendency to depict them as merely fast track, incidental, or parochial. Instead, the exhibition traces these cities' connections with other world places and the critical lessons they provide for urban development more generally.
