Descripción

The Middle East is well-known for its historic gardens that have been shaped and developed in two millenniums since the pre-Islamic era. The role of urban landscape projects in Middle Eastern cities has grown in prominence, with a gradual shift in emphasis from gardens for the private sphere to an increasingly public function. These contemporary landscape projects, either designed as public plazas or public parks, have played a significant role in transferring the modern Middle Eastern cities to a new era and also to transform to a newly shaped social culture in which public has a voice. Gharipour considers what ties these projects to their historical context, and what regional and local elements and concepts have been used in their design.
