“The essays of this monograph address the overall subject of architecture and built environment. [T]he essays of the publication are concerned not so much with a specific matter, but with a specific event: Diwan al-Mimar (Arabic for ‘Architect’s Forum’), which the Center for the Study of the Built Environment (CSBE) organizes in association with Darat al Funun […]. The individual components of the process that has made up Diwan al-Mimar are relatively familiar within the context of academic and professional lecture series and discussion groups.”
