Designing Research and Heritage

15. 11. 2011

After the success of the work we did last year for the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities, we were commissioned by the Saudi National Center for Architectural Heritage to design “Research and Heritage”, an extensive compilation of research papers examining architectural heritage in the Arab world at large. The bilingual 500-page publication is printed in both soft and hard cover versions.
