Urban Conservation and Reconstruction in Arabian Gulf - Seminar Proceedings

The conference proceedings of a seminar titled “Urban Conservation and Reconstruction in the Arabian Gulf”, held in Dubai in March 2015, introduce a much-needed thorough epistemological framework for the conservation and reconstruction of cultural heritage in the Arab Muslim world, thus contributing to challenges of universal concerns. Therefore, we hope that the papers of this volume will initiate a professional dialogue aimed at addressing issues related to the notion of authenticity and approaches to the reconstruction of historic buildings from an Arab-Muslim perspective.
