Kurzbeschreibung: 

Al Manakh 2 is a special of Volume, a project by Archis + AMO + C-Lab + Pink Tank + NAi + ...

Al Manakh 2 investigates actual economic, social and cultural conditions in the Gulf region, and confronts these with demographic and political challenges. In doing so, AM2 goes deep into Gulf territory and asks what this means for the region and other parts of the world. Post-oil development strategies and experimentation in urbanism and cohabitation are checked on their meaning and potential.

Al Manakh Gulf Continued will offer the public once again its overview of the Gulf cities, this time focusing on how, amid a quickly changing economic landscape, these cities are reexamining their methods and their relationships with the rest of the world. Tempered by economic slow-down but equipped with financial and development know-how, these cities are reaching out beyond their borders to export development and urbanization to parts of the world not yet participating in global urban investment. This issue of Al Manakh will cover the geopolitical, technological, environmental and financial aspects of this ongoing transformation. Cities of Saudi Arabia and Iran are also added to the scope.
