One of the beauties of the city is its distinct personality and rich history. The late city planner, Charles Abrams observed that “A city… is the pulsating product of the human hand and mind, reflecting man's history, his struggle for freedom, creativity, genius-and his selfishness and errors.” In this colloquium series, Middle Eastern Cities, we address questions such as: What induced (ancient) MENA civilizations to urbanize? How did the rise of cities shape MENA cultures? What does the architecture and urban planning of the MENA region say about its citizens? Through the examination of specific cities, architectural spaces, and landscapes, we will consider not only the conditions of how these Middle Eastern cities came to be, but also the effect these cities have had on the rest of the region & the world.
