Critical Studies in Architecture of the Middle East is devoted to the most recent scholarship concerning historic and contemporary architecture, landscape, and urban design of the Middle East and of regions shaped by diasporic communities more globally. We invite interdisciplinary studies from diverse perspectives that address the visual characteristics of the built environment, ranging from architectural case studies to urban analysis. The series will illustrate a range of approaches to the commission, design, construction, use, and reception of buildings and landscapes throughout the region; concurrently, it will illuminate the region’s diverse architectural cultures and traditions. The series intends to present the history, theory, practice, and critical analyses of historical and contemporary architecture, landscape, and urban design, as well as the interpretation and conservation of the region’s existing cultural heritage. It will include surveys, monographs, and edited volumes.

Series editors: Mohammad Gharipour & Christiane Gruber
