Arthur Erickson Middle East Projects


image publications


Arthur Erickson, more than any other Canadian architect, explored and addressed cultural differences in his design and the work he has undertaken in the Middle-East is comparatively little known. Since 1975, Erickson undertook some forty projects in eight of the countries in the Middle East, most of them large-scale public projects. He designed masterplans, universities, museums, office buildings, residential complexes. Most of these projects provide an important insight into the challenges of designing buildings and cities in an environment and culture radically different from our own.
