Al Manakh Gulf Continued: a Conversation

June 2 2010

Thursday 3 June, 6 pm, Architectural Association, London. With Rem Koolhaas, Brett Steele, Todd Reisz and Shumon Basar.

The table will discuss architectural books and introduce Al Manakh: Gulf Continued, an essential and comprehensive guide to the cities of the Gulf, produced by AMO, Archis, Pink Tank and NAI. A follow-up to the first installment of Al Manakh – made in the very different moment of 2007 – this 536-page book of interviews, travelogs, analyses, propositions, infographics and photography explores the growing interconnectedness of the region and the complex impact of the financial crisis.

In the AA’s front room, Rem Koolhaas and Al Manakh editor Todd Reisz will discuss the implications of the book and OMA’s continuing work in the Gulf region. This event coincides with the last days of the exhibition OMA Book Machine in the AA’s gallery next door.
