Upon its release, Al Manakh became the authoritative resource for understanding the scope of urban development along the Gulf coast. Released in 2007, Al Manakh 1 offered detailed analyses of cities like Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai and Kuwait City. Contributions from international and regional architects and planners plus contributions from the Gulf’s most active participants in making these cities created an informative window into the region. The 496-page volume is filled with interviews, essays, charts and exclusive photographs.
