In this event, a panel will discuss approaches taken towards architectural conservation in the historical areas of Bahrain and the challenges of introducing contemporary architecture within this urban context.
In a region whose architectural language oscillates between nostalgic reinvention and super-modernism, preservation projects commissioned by the Ministry of Culture will be examined as case studies.

In association with Shubbak – A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture.
