Resumé

Interdisciplinary in approach, this volume explores and deciphers the symbolic value and iconicity
of the built environment in the Arab Gulf Region, its aesthetics, language and performative
characteristics. It suggests that recent developments in this region of the world not only represent a
showcase of extraordinary initiatives by which these desert states have transformed, but also that the
commodification of local ‘traditions’ acts as an essential element in the countries’ effort to design
an Arab version of (hyper-)modernity and to position themselves as a regional and global archetype,
which has frequently been adopted elsewhere.
